Spark Up is a Business Accelerator designed to inspire, engage and encourage an entrepreneurial mind-set. Spark Up provides co-working space and facilities designed for collaboration which encourages growth and impact on the local economy. Inspirational masterclasses, workshops and one-to-one mentoring are delivered by leading entrepreneurs who have been there, seen it and done it.

To date, our Spark Up entrepreneurs have seen their collective turnover increase by 163%. We have generated more than £453,000 in investment opportunities and have seen our entrepreneurs increase their commercial acumen tenfold. Spark Up is powered by the Liverpool and Sefton Chambers of Commerce and we have access to a wealth of businesses and networks to help accelerate your business.

Following five successful twelve-week programmes, we have extended our support to twelve months for early stage businesses that have been trading for up to two years.

The programme is open for all to apply in the Liverpool City Region and accepts both trading businesses as well as those with just an idea and no business experience. Spark Up has a vast support network to assist businesses from any sector.
