Why Liverpool?

Despite a thriving local business community, Liverpool lags behind many rival cities in its use of the Internet for business, including Manchester, London, Leeds and Bristol. A recent report by the Boston Consulting Group found that small businesses actively using the Internet had sales growth more than four times greater than less active companies, demonstrating a huge opportunity for economic growth if more Liverpool businesses can succeed online.

Raja Saggi, Head of Small Business Initiatives at Google UK, said:
“The Internet has created huge opportunities, but many business owners feel they don’t have the expertise they need to help their businesses grow online. This is the first time we have ever run a series of events aimed at helping one city, and we’ll be working hard with our partners to make a real difference to Liverpool’s Internet economy over the coming months. With Liverpool’s strong business networks and sense of community, we believe this is the best city to run such an initiative.”
