Dr Carol Costello, chair of KQ Liverpool, explained: “We measure our success upon the achievements of the businesses that are located within KQ Liverpool. Helping to nurture and grow those businesses is of utmost importance to us.

“The programmes are designed to support start-up creation, accelerate scale-up growth, and encourage inward investment into Liverpool city region, as well as creating tangible aspirations for local students to develop STEM based careers right here on their doorstep.
