Global Entrepreneurship Week: 174 Law

“Be brave, worry less and enjoy the journey!” – David Hayhurst, Managing Director, 174 Law.

The Mayoral 100 Club, founded by Mayor Joe Anderson, is an exclusive business initiative that opens doors within the city and contributes to the growth of the local economy. Throughout their membership, large companies and SMEs showcase their business to international markets, connect with key decision makers, and gain national media coverage and commercial opportunities while also achieving CSR objectives through cultural and social engagement.

4,935 new companies started up in Liverpool in 2016, a 9% surge on the previous year, which equates to 14 new businesses every day. Furthermore, there was an increase of 5.45% in new business ventures across the Liverpool City Region in the same period.

To celebrate the tenth anniversary of Global Entrepreneurship Week, we are championing our entrepreneurial 100 Club Members and local companies by learning more about their motivations, what inspires them, and the challenges they have faced along the way.
