Spark Up paves the way for Global Entrepreneurship Week in Liverpool

The Liverpool Echo's business pages have reported that Liverpool’s biggest free business accelerator programme, Spark Up will encourage people to explore their inner creativity and entrepreneurial spirit as part of the city’s plans for Global Entrepreneurship Week.

Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world’s largest campaign to promote entrepreneurship. This year it will take place 16-22 November, with events across the world designed to help entrepreneurs get started in business.

In Liverpool, special guests Gary Millar and Andy Bounds will headline ‘Spark Up Presents’ at the Spark Up headquarters based at Liverpool Chamber of Commerce, Old Hall Street. From 1.30pm on Wednesday 18th November both will look to inspire people to explore their potential as self-starters and innovators in business.

Mr Millar, the Cabinet Member for Business, Enterprise and Investment and a businessman in his own right will talk about his journey as an entrepreneur including his experience as the co-owner of Parr Street Studios. He will also talk about his work with fledgling businesses, helping them take their first steps on the road to growth and job creation.

International best-seller and award winning sales trainer, Andy Bounds will talk about the power of communication. He will show guests how they can transform their sales performance by delivering compelling messages about their businesses.

Spark Up offers support and advice for budding entrepreneurs via their 12-week programme of workshops, seminars and one-to-one mentoring. It covers everything from the perfect pitch, business practicalities and realties through to developing an entrepreneurial mindset and making the right connections.

The event is free for all to attend with limited places available. If you would like to attend please email info@sparkup.org.uk for further information.

Applications for the January programme are now open and can be made here.
