Talent Match

Talent Match is a ten-day programme for 18 to 24-year-olds which aims to create up to 40 new sustainable businesses run by young entrepreneurs.

According to Regenerus Chief Executive Cate Murphy, the course is aimed at young would-be entrepreneurs who want to set up their own businesses for a variety of reasons.

While some may have hit upon a great idea to fill a gap in the market, others may have a particular talent or skill they want to sell, or be passionate about providing a specific service.

Key elements of the Talent Match package include a £250 start-up grant and three months’ ongoing mentoring from a successful entrepreneur.

Other parts of the course include practical help with developing an image and brand, and advice aimed at helping participants to lose their fear of finance. It also incorporates one-to-one support from qualified business advisers, introductions to useful contacts and networking opportunities with other young entrepreneurs.

Talent Match is open to young people aged from 18-24 who live in Liverpool, Sefton or Wirral who are not currently in employment or at college.
