The LJMU Start-up Network is a diverse and lively community that provides its members with a free and supportive forum of entrepreneurial knowledge.

You can tap into this network in many ways, as we help you to join the dots by connecting you with fellow entrepreneurs who can offer their guidance and knowledge. Whether this is chatting to our Ecosystem Manager to find out who you need to be talking to, hearing about new business opportunities or taking advantage of free access to big enterprise events – we can help to put you on the right path. Starting a business doesn’t have to be lonely when you have a community like ours.
