2011-04-20 00:00

Techcelerate pioneered the development of an ecosystem for tech entrepreneurs and their businesses in 2006. In 2011, it started accelerating the ecosystem development by establishing Tech Centre Manchester with Bruntwood. This workshop brings key figures from Greater Manchester to explore how disparate efforts can come together to turn Manchester and the North West into the first choice international destination for setting up and growing Internet and Mobile Tech businesses.
