Creating a world-class city for business

Liverpool is a global city, one that’s proud of its heritage and culture but also passionate about looking to the future. That makes it an inspiring and exhilarating place to do business.

With a global perspective and exceptional economic strengths, Liverpool is recognised as one of the UK’s leading business destinations. Blue-chips, start-ups, entrepreneurs and emerging talent are attracted to Liverpool by investment opportunities, business benefits and an outstanding quality of life. That’s where we fit in at Liverpool Vision.

Liverpool Vision is the city’s economic development company which integrates economic development and business and enterprise support designed to accelerate the city’s growth and build a sustainable economy. Our business is helping your business.

We are the company creating an environment for growth, generating a long term impact in both the supply and demand sides of the economy. Liverpool Vision also plays a huge role in transforming perceptions of Liverpool, by communicating positive messages about the city to local, national and international audiences, reaching many hundreds of businesses and opinion formers.

Liverpool Vision has three (directorates) related functions:

Each directorate is overseen by an experienced director, leading a dedicated team of staff. They are supported by a small support function providing business planning and development services, financial management and human resources skills.

We work with our partners in business, cultural organisations, educational institutions and community groups to promote the city as a place to live, work, visit, invest and study.

We are governed by a Board of directors who set our business plan and budget, and is supported by a small advisory group of Councillors, a representative from the private sector and Chief Executives of the Council and Liverpool Vision. We have a team focused on doing everything they can to support business locally, nationally, and internationally.
