Our Lunch Club is held on the first Thursday of each month.

These informal events provide a platform to raise awareness of your business activity, find out more about the latest innovations coming out of our community and for us to share updates on any upcoming funding calls or social events.

There will also be a different themed session at the end of each event, focusing on topics such as business support, technology, grant funding and regional activity. This month’s after-networking presentation will be delivered by Primary Capital Partners, with a focus on sourcing finance to support growth in SMEs. Read more below*

We have some fantastic companies, academics, students and industry professionals based within our building and within our wider networks, and this lunchtime event aims to get everyone together for a regular chat to better understand what exciting activity is taking place on our doorstep and beyond. 

An outline Lunch Club agenda is below:

  • 12:30pm – 12:50pm: Refreshments and Networking
  • 12:50pm – 1:00pm: Announcements and profile raising opportunities
  • 1:00pm – 1:30pm: Themed presentation – Finance for SME Growth

Our Lunch Club is open to all companies, especially those located within the Knowledge Quarter and Jelly Liverpool, and we look forward to welcoming new faces into our innovation hub each month.

Please join us for this lunch and learn meet-up and start the month by making new connections and raising your profile.

We will be looking for ideas on how best to shape the Lunch Club for the benefit of our members going forwards, so please share your ideas and let us know if you’d like to sponsor one this year.
