#VenturefestMCR – 21 September 2016

Venturefest returns to Manchester in September, with its unique brand of inspirational speakers, interactive workshops and the chance to network with some of the region’s most successful business leaders.

Organised by the Business Growth Hub and Innovate UK, Venturefest Manchester 2016 is all about technology and innovation, and the ways in which they can help companies to grow.

Venturefest offers a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs, investors and innovators to chat informally, share ideas and develop new partnerships.  There’s also the chance to tap into the expertise offered by the Hub and its partners, and take advantage of advice from organisations that understand business and what makes it tick.
