The WO Business Academy

Join us for this 4-week programme to build your business idea whilst learning the key skills & knowledge to be a new business owner!

This 4-week programme has been created to support unemployed women in the Liverpool city region who want to take their business idea to the next level!

Join us to be part of our third cohort!

The WO Business Academy is a great place to turn your business idea into a business plan, whilst learning the hard and soft skills needed to be a successful business owner and building your personal and professional confidence.

It is also a great way to build a network with other women-led start-up businesses in your local area and follow each other on your business journey.

You will take part in a series of interactive workshops and sessions dedicated to building your skill and knowledge, including:

  • Business planning
  • Understanding finances
  • Marketing a business
  • Pitching
  • Building your confidence
  • Recharging your resilience
  • Activating your assertiveness

You will also take part in a ‘Welcome to the Academy’ session and a graduation session at the end of the programme where you can celebrate each other’s success and dedication!

Upon graduating, you will receive a £200 grant to help cover any costs!

The training will take place over 8 sessions through hybrid learning. Half of the sessions will take place in person at 54 St James Street and the other half will be online. You will be sent all of the relevant information once you are officially enrolled!


This programme is open to unemployed or economically inactive women in the Liverpool City Region (Liverpool, Sefton, Knowsley, Wirral, St Helens, or Halton)
