Downtown welcomes you to TechHub

27 May

One of my priorities foBLCrCWACUAA7IPkr Downtown Manchester in Business is to introduce groups of people to one another so they can make the city a better place to do business.

This was my motivation behind an event at TechHub, the incubator and shared workspace in Carver’s Warehouse in the Northern Quarter. It was a great success, Doug Ward from TechHub, Gareth Burton from Burton Beavan who provides me and techHub with financial advice, and Josh from Melbourne Hosting all gave their own perspective on how this ecosystem can connect in Manchester.

I’ll mention the context a little more – the event was informal, laid back and we served pizza and bottled beer. It also took place at 4pm on a Friday before the spring bank holiday at the end of May, a complete no-no in every events handbook I’ve ever read (or written). But it worked. All to do with the spirit of thinking differently.

    Great event Michael and one which the guys at http://www.gosocialmarketing.co.uk were really impressed with. They got a great insight into what TechHub is all about and made some great connections. Thanks.

    Thanks for arranging a great informal event Michael.

    Good to see someone from the Manchester business community doing something about improving Manchesters digital future rather than just taking about it

    Look forward to many more great events with both TechHub and Downtown
