We are no more!

When tech wasn't sexy, we took charge of building an ecosystem for tech entrepreneurs in Manchester and the North West. We ran over 100+ tech events, brought investors and deal makers together. We made introductions that helped to create tech companies such as CANDDi, Intuitive Business Intelligence, Screach, and many more.

Community asked for a flagship event, and we responded with Northern Tech Awards, which GP Bullhound acquired later in 2013.

We helped Southern companies run tech events in Manchester, and partnered with ICT KTN.

But now, the time has come to end everything and let the youngsters build the next phase of the tech ecosystem.

Thanks for awesome experiences, and helping me to bring the community together. More than anything, big thank you to Sam Sethi, Ivan Pope and Imran Ali for getting me started in the first place.

And the 2,300 strong techstartup community from Manchester to San Francisco and beyond who made it all possible.

All the best
