Business scale-up programme for digital, creative, tech and tech-enabled businesses in the Liverpool City Region.
Gather is the business scale-up programme for digital, creative, tech and tech-enabled businesses in the Liverpool City Region. Gather will create a thriving and highly connected ecosystem that benefits everyone who works and plays in this sector through a suite of events, activities, and two business support programmes:
Shift is a 4-6 week fully-funded cohort programme. Designed to help leaders generate a realistic and in-depth overview of their business enabling them to solve scaling challenges in a shared environment. Applications open for Shift’s first wave in April 2020.
Beyond is a 6-month premium programme for ambitious leaders. Aimed at the highest potential companies who want to build authentic community across the sector and unlock growth in their business. Beyond’s first cohort will kick off in January 2021.
Gather will be delivered by Form, a growth consultancy for creative and tech companies.
Gather is part of the Liverpool City Region Metro Mayor’s Business Growth Package, elements of which are being redirected to support the local business community to recover from the negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Gather is also supported by Growth Platform and part-funded by the Local Growth Fund.
