Launchpad: Starting a Business During a Pandemic (Start-up Conference)
- Are you thinking of starting a business but wondering if it is possible in the current climate?
- Are you looking for ways to build a new income for yourself and exploring self-employment as an option?
- Do you have business ideas you’ve never yet looked into but think now could be the time to explore?
Our Launchpad event will help you to understand the practicalities of getting started as well as connecting you with entrepreneurs who have been there, done it and even re-adapted in the face of Covid 19.
Led by The Women’s Organisation this event is part of our Enterprise Hub programme, part funded by European Regional Development Fund and offering FREE advice and guidance to those living in the Liverpool City Region thinking of starting a business.

Helen Clarke – Helen Clarke Autism
Helen established ‘Helen Clarke Autism,’ an autism training and consultancy service, to provide training and support to schools, organisations, charities and families, having spent 20 happy years working with autistic children as a teacher.
She is the founder of ‘Spectacular Girls Well-being Workshops for Autistic Girls’ and works to ensure that the needs of autistic girls and women are better understood. Helen has a Masters’ degree in Education, the NaSENCo award and a BA in Illustration. She has spoken at local and national autism events, has had articles published by The Chartered College of Teaching and AuKids magazine and works to support autistic children locally and nationally. During lockdown, Helen has been writing a book to help others to understand the issues and inequalities that autistic girls face and how we can empower this group of young people based on her workshops and is mum to four children aged between 3-20.
Marie Hall – Empowerment House
Marie Hall is the founder of EMPOWERMENT HOUSE, which is a business dedicated and committed to the empowerment of females. This would have normally happened through delivery of the programme, over a number of weeks to a cohort of women and also through networking events.
When COVID hit, EMPOWERMENT HOUSE had to pivot entirely to become an online business. What started as potentially the end of EMPOWERMENT HOUSE has been turned into it’s next chapter. It’s about empowerment.
The event will take place on zoom. Please register via Eventbrite and a zoom link and password will be sent to you before the event by email.
