Vision is seeing the invisible
Just thinking about it isn’t enough. We need to take innovative solutions and make them happen.
Venturefest brings together SMEs with investors, entrepreneurs, innovators and academics to connect and do business.
If you’re an innovator, Venturefest is your opportunity to get your idea out there, find investment and accelerate growth.
We showcase the innovative products and services that our region’s most innovative entrepreneurs and progressive SMEs have to offer the world, giving investors the opportunity to be part of the next big thing.
Sticking to our winning formula, but better than ever, the event will include our ‘Innovation Showcase’ competition and our Three Tribes panel, consisting of investors, innovators and entrepreneurs, who’ll shed light on how to commercialise and bring innovative new concepts to market.
Connecting innovation with industry and investment
Last year’s Venturefest Manchester was a showcase of the cutting-edge innovation and entrepreneurship coming out of Greater Manchester. Over 700 entrepreneurs and businesses came together with innovators and academics to fuse fresh ideas with novel research and opportunities for funding.
Trailblazing entrepreneurs shared their stories, while guest speakers and other market leaders presented their unique insights.
