Are you struggling with challenges that are holding you back in growing your business?

Pink Link is working with the Growth Platform to deliver the Peer Network Programme. This programme will help female entrepreneurs reach their business goals and aspirations. In these free, fully-funded sessions you will make meaningful connections with like-minded female business leaders in your region. Together with a business coach, you will explore practical solutions to challenges and find outcomes that will help you grow your company.

Overall, you will receive 18 hours of peer networking and 3.5 hours of one to one coaching in a government initiative funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.


As part of this offer you will also have access to:

  • Free visit to attend network meetings, including Liverpool and Southport, which are held monthly across the North West; over 20 hours of free networking.
  • Invitation to free Pink Link masterclasses to upskill and support business growth.
  • Invitation to the next Pink Link Regional Conference.
  • Mindset and Wellbeing session.
  • Feature in a Social Media Campaign.


You will need to meet the following criteria:

  • A turnover of at least £100,000
  • Employ at least 5 employees*
  • Operating for 1 year +
  • Have not previously participated in the Peer Networks programme
  • Aspire to improve and scale up
  • Your business must have a trading address within Liverpool City Region (Liverpool, Knowsley, Halton, Sefton, St Helen’s, Wirral).

* Each cohort may contain a max of three businesses with less than 5 employees.

Please contact us as a business who uses sub-contractors and freelancers to deliver projects in place of employed staff and a sole trader without staff or freelancers, who is on the verge of growth and expects to recruit staff in the next 6 months could be eligible.


Take a look at what other female business leaders enjoyed about the Peer Networks Programme delivered by Pink Link.

Victoria Corcoran, Director, Pets Country Manor

“To be honest, I honestly didn’t think something like this would be of any help because none of the people in the group run the same type of business as me. I thought – how on earth can they help as they have no idea on how to run a business like mine? Also, I was really nervous because I’m quite a quiet person in groups of people who I don’t know.

Wow, how wrong could I have been! Everyone was so helpful and friendly. There were different ways to get involved and ask for help and advice. It was very interactive and I was moved to see how many completely different ideas everyone came up with and advice on how to put them into practice!”

Dawn Belmar, COO, Apollo Care

“Initially I was a bit apprehensive of joining the programme but I am so glad I did. The group was a mixture of business owners and operational staff so I never felt that I was out of place. They were very friendly and it was so interesting listening to them all as their businesses were so varied. We gelled as a group and learned a lot from each other, there were some really good ideas shared amongst the group.

What did surprise me was that I was able to contribute to the group just as much as I learnt and that really built my confidence. This has benefitted me so much in my operations role and helped me to win promotion within the company.”
