We ❤ Manchester Businesses

16 May 2017 by Al McCloud

Maybe you’ve noticed that Team UKFast are pretty fond of Manchester? You could say we love the place. In fact you should say that because we do love it. It’s our home, it’s where our journey began and it’s a city which we believe rivals any other on earth.

Manchester’s booming technology and digital industries, and its entrepreneurial history, mean that there are new and promising businesses popping up all the time. Yes, it’s very easy to talk about how much we love this place, but we’re not just talking; we’re doing all we can to help these new business start-ups thrive.

Our fast-approaching Startup 101 event here at UKFast Campus is one example, another is our CEO Lawrence Jones MBE speaking to entrepreneurs at Manchester’s Central Library for The Business & Intellectual Property Centre.

Lawrence will be sharing insights gathered over 17 years at the helm of UKFast. Lawrence has steered the UKFast ship from a bedroom startup here in Manchester to the 400-strong, happy team we are today, and will be sharing the motivations, insights, and the tips he’s uncovered along the way.

The BIPC is based inside Manchester’s Central Library, and it holds regular free clinics for businesses on intellectual property and patents, as well as free startup advice.

If you’re an entrepreneur with a great idea and would like to hear how he did it, you can sign up below.
