Start-up Hub

Nurturing talent and empowering entrepreneurs

Since launching in 2003, we've helped kick-start more than 300 businesses.

Are you curious to find out more about starting up your own business? Perhaps you have an idea that you want to explore – or maybe you’re ready to launch your venture right now? Whatever stage of the process you’re at, the Start-up Hub is here to support you.

If you are a current LJMU student or a recent LJMU graduate (within the last five years) looking to start your own business, become self-employed or work as a freelancer – then LJMU’s Start-up Hub is the place to make it happen.

We’re a dedicated team of enterprise professionals with a wide range of work-based and start-up experience, committed to helping you explore and develop your ideas, turning them into reality. 

You can do this in a variety of ways including:

  • practical workshops
  • enterprise meet-ups
  • one-to-one advice
  • leadership programmes
  • signposting to funding opportunities

We’re an established and well-respected member of the Liverpool start-up community and can help you make important connections across the Liverpool City Region and beyond.
