LCR High Growth Programme

The LCR High Growth Programme is designed to support businesses in Liverpool City Region demonstrating high growth potential to innovate, adapt, and grow.

Access expert advice and support

Through offering a range of support measures designed to drive innovation and growth, our account managers will work with business leaders to take a forensic look at their business and connect them with support that will best create growth.

The programme is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and Liverpool City Region Combined Authority.

How does it work?

Free Business Diagnostic & Account Management.

The first step of your journey is to contact Growth Platform’s account managers who will work with you to perform a detailed business diagnostic to understand all elements of the business activity and your high growth potential.

Dedicated account managers will act as a central point of contact, guiding you through the different elements of the programme depending on your needs.

Once you have completed the business diagnostic your account manager can refer you into one or more of the following support services:

Edge Hill University SME Productivity & Innovation Centre (PIC)

Edge Hill University’s SME PIC can offer a 6–8-week intensive intervention experience, that will analyse growth and productivity challenges, utilise data-driven decision making, boost productivity and produce clear actions on strategic direction, operational tactics, and investment readiness.

Liverpool City Region Capital Grant Fund

St Helens Chamber can provide funding to businesses across the City Region to stimulate productivity-led growth. The fund is intended to remove barriers businesses may face when looking to scale, and act as a catalyst for business growth.

High Growth Innovation Fund

Delivered by Growth Platform – Liverpool City Region Growth Company, the High Growth Innovation Fund will provide grants to support local businesses who have innovative solutions to adapt and grow during recovery and beyond.
