Wayra UK, part of Telefónica’s global innovation network, Business Growth Hub, Oldham Council and Hack Oldham invite you to this exclusive event to discuss the launch of a new digital enterprise hub and more crucially, the ever-growing need to accelerate young businesses in the Greater Manchester area.

Wayra North, which is set to open in November, will be new multi-functional building offering access to low cost and flexible workspace and equipment for small to medium size digital enterprises. Teams will be able to leverage a range of pre-acceleration services, including access to investors, mentors and coaches.

We’re gathering entrepreneurs, representatives from big businesses, investors and other major influencers to discover how this new hub can complement the work they're doing in building the northern ecosystem.
