Capsica and the sponsors are backing The Sirolli Institute's Liverpool groups, to inspire more local people to make the leap and set up their own business. Who knows where the next Roddick, Branson, Sugar, Dyson will come from?
Founded in 1996 by Ernesto Sirolli, the Sirolli Institute is a non-profit education and training organisation, introducing enterprise facilitation to communities and working in concert with existing economic development efforts to help entrepreneurs – a catalyst for renewed community pride and civic spirit. The future of every community lies in the dreams and aspirations of its people; Sirolli helps to capitalise on the passion, intelligence, imagination and resources of local entrepreneurs. Since 1985, thousands of new and expanding businesses resulting in thousands of new jobs have been started with the help of enterprise facilitators in dozens of communities in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, the USA and Canada.
