Start-ups and micro businesses seeking investment are being offered the chance to pitch their ideas to Wirral Wolves – a new Dragons’ Den-style initiative aimed at helping fledgling firms get off the ground.
Wirral Wolves is the brainchild of Nik Ellis and Justine McLaughlin, directors of Heswall-based SME incubator service Whitfield Business Support (WBS).
Established in April 2015, WBS works with more than 200 clients providing marketing and design services, office space, virtual office functions and a range of bespoke business support packages.
Backed by a £50,000 investment pot and decades of business expertise, the pair are inviting firms from across the region to present a case for investment in return for equity.
Ms McLaughlin said: “The North West is a hotbed of entrepreneurial activity and we want to help the brightest prospects enjoy the best chance of success by providing critical support, especially in the early stages.
“Through Wirral Wolves we’re hoping to invest in a wide range of exciting start-ups and micro firms, using our know-how and financial backing to help them become thriving businesses.
“We are particularly keen to hear from firms operating in the Wirral, Cheshire and North Wales regions.
“As well as funding, we are offering a complete range of business support services. Start-ups that pitch successfully could receive help with start-up assistance, accounts and IT support, recruiting, and a host of marketing services”
