Manchester Science Partnership has launched a new £2million tech incubator at the Manchester Technology Centre as part of its efforts to build on the city region’s strengths in technology and digital innovation. The incubator is for start-ups in the fields of digital health, smart cities, internet of things (IoT), cyber security, and cloud technologies that require access to finance, talent and markets advice from leading companies in the digital sector.
The May 10 launch was attended by more than 250 people, including the Mayor of Greater Manchester, who said: “I want Manchester to be the UK’s leading tech and digital centre and this new tech incubator takes the city to another level, because if we are going to be a leader in this industry we have to build an ecosystem that supports businesses at every level, from start-up to the biggest players too.
“We also need to build a culture of collaboration across the sector, and the whole city region to achieve our ambitions.”
He added: “Manchester Science Partnerships is a great example of the collaboration we need, and I congratulate them on creating this amazing space, in such a fantastic location – right on the doorstep of our universities – and I am sure it will be a place where great ideas are brought to life.”
