About this event
Growth Platform is partnering with Firestarters to produce a special six-month programme of events called Growth for Good. The events will support businesses in the Liverpool City Region (LCR) who are looking to learn from expert speakers, gather strategic insights and have the opportunity to grow their network with purpose-driven people.
What is the Growth for Good series?
Hosted across the city region’s six boroughs, the Growth for Good series has highlighted some core challenges that businesses face today. The previous roadshow events have covered themes of diversity & inclusion, net zero carbon, fundraising & investment, purpose-driven business and start-up culture. Now, we’re bringing together all of the insights from these roadshow events into a final impressive showcase event!
The showcase event will welcome purpose-driven businesses to reflect on the successes and learnings from the previous events and enjoy an afternoon and evening of meaningful connection. The event will centre around “sparking change” across the city region by connecting purpose-driven people from the private, public and third sectors. Even if you haven’t attended our other roadshow events, you are very welcome to attend our showcase event.
