Opportunity: Take part in a free 12-week Business Incubator Programme

Have you got an idea for a product or service but never known how to develop it? Turn your business idea into the next big thing, by taking part in this free 12-week Business Incubator Programme.

What’s on offer?

Starting in January 2020, you’ll spend one afternoon a week at Liverpool’s leading shared workspace LAB by Capacity, under the guidance of local entrepreneurs and business figures who’ve walked in your shoes.

You’ll be guided by expert mentors, who are currently, or have spent a significant part of their career in business. They will share their experiences and nurture you through a series of workshops and master-classes until you’re “market ready”.

At the end of the 12 weeks, you’ll get to pitch your idea to a panel of experts, educators and investors at a one-off event, for the chance to win £1000.

You’ll also get a further three months free membership at LAB by Capacity, with full access to business growth events, further mentoring and the LAB business network.

Previous participant and Founder of The Funding Crowd, Hannah Forbes, said:

The Emerge Programme was a catalyst for the growth of my business. We were taught the fundamentals of business in an engaging way and by inspiring speakers that had lived the ups and downs of entrepreneurship. Most significant was the valuable business contacts I have gained as part of the programme. Chris and Liz really took time to learn what you needed to grow your business, and then either provided or put you in touch with people who could provide everything you needed.”

How to apply

There are only 15 places available on the programme, you can apply via CareerHub. The deadline for applications is 17 November.
