A report published on  23 July emphasises the need to deliver more investment-ready businesses and a stronger finance pipeline for every stage of business growth across the North West and outlines the steps necessary to achieve this.

Informed by direct feedback from investors and businesses across Manchester and Liverpool, the report (entitled "Finance and Innovation – Essential Enablers for Future Business Growth") recognises that increasing angel investment and early stage risk capital as well as improving access to essential skills, knowledge and expert advisors and mentors is critical for supporting the high-growth innovative business community that is so important to our economy.

Both Liverpool City Region Mayor Steve Rotheram and Greater Manchester City Region Mayor Andy Burnham commented on the critical importance of innovative high growth businesses in the recovery, rebuilding and overall future economic direction for the region and the need to redress regional and national imbalances in SME funding availability.
