Major news from the KQ Development Company – LSP Community News 20/07

The LSP team would like to congratulate the Knowledge Quarter's Colin Sinclair on his appointment as Interim CEO of the newly formed Knowledge Quarter Development Company.

The KQ Development Company, jointly founded by the City Council, LJMU and the University of Liverpool, will work with investors to boost the City Region’s offer in science and tech. The company’s aim is to build a world-leading innovation eco-system to increase the commercialisation of academic research, foster more spin-out companies and start-ups; and help the city’s innovation-led businesses to grow.

Colin and the team’s focus will be on securing private sector funding which will be used to further the success of the Park by helping to accelerate our longer term capital expenditure plans. The next few months should prove very interesting and we look forward to seeing how the company’s mission progresses.
