We Empower the North

Our Beginnings

Our beginnings

Tech Manchester exists to provide startups with an opportunity to learn from those who have been there and done it, for projects to find the financial backing they need, and for the inquisitive to connect with like-minded innovators. Our goal is to lift Manchester's tech offering to new heights.

To become the leading tech city in the UK, Manchester needs to come together as one. Our tech community can engage and collaborate, drive economic growth and raise the city's profile across the country and the globe. Tech Manchester was born to aid this consolidation.
