Welcome to Liverpool, where collaboration is king
By Bruntwood Works
The Liverpool City Region boasts more than its fair share of entrepreneurs and SMEs and that spirit of enterprise has launched some incredibly successful national and international businesses over the years, from Bibby Line Group and Unilever to TJ Morris and Weightmans.
If there are typically six degrees of separation in our social and professional circles, we can probably take a few off that number in Liverpool. The city’s business community is close-knit; business owners work hard for themselves and for one another, sharing a strong commitment to networking, peer support, mentoring and collaboration.
Liverpool is a city that proudly faces the world and its business community is no exception, regularly looking out beyond its shores for opportunities to improve the prospects of themselves and their neighbouring businesses.
Partnerships first conceived overseas in Shanghai or at MIPIM in Cannes, as well as homegrown connections through TEDx or the International Festival for Business, continue to reap significant, long-term rewards and Liverpool understands the power of creative thinking and collaborative working.
A warm welcome is guaranteed for new entrants hoping to make a positive difference to the city through innovation, investment or jobs. Various public and private sector organisations support businesses to find their feet and make their mark in this great maritime city.
With an abundance of culture, leisure, sport and retail attractions, this is a wonderful place not only to build a new business, but to also build a life, as evidenced by the thousands of people who move to Liverpool to study or take a first job and choose never to leave. Indeed, many of the relationships forged through business become friendships and those close bonds make Liverpool a great place to do business.
At Bruntwood Works, we also understand the power of collaboration in Liverpool. Our portfolio of newly-refurbished buildings all offer bespoke spaces for SMEs and larger businesses to come together to share ideas, develop new projects or simply to have a coffee and a chat.
Many of our own partners are businesses born and raised in the city region, such as Graffiti Spirits, which will be operating the new bar and restaurant space in our new Pioneer development at The Plaza. We also work with Marcloud, a customer in the Cotton Exchange, using artificial intelligence to maximise our own business development infrastructure.
We are proud of the many longstanding relationships we have with our customers in Liverpool which have allowed us to work alongside them to understand their own expansion plans and develop new grow-on space within our buildings, keeping them within the Bruntwood Works family.
If you are starting a business or considering a relocation or expansion, look no further than Liverpool, the home of collaborative business.
