What we're about

Entrepreneurs, Startups, Business Owners & Creatives in Manchester

This group is for anyone with an idea, in the process of starting up or who may already be running a successful business to come together, share ideas, answer questions, act as support network for one another and create some events with like minded people.

This could be arranging guest speakers, networking events, social events and holding monthly meet ups, addressing key areas that some of us may either fall short or excel in for example: Accounts, Marketing, Sales, Business Development or IT.

We look forward to welcoming you and sharing ideas.
