The drive to turn dreams into a career

Join us in Rochdale for our ever-popular Energise event and race ahead of the competition. 

On the face of it, running a business and motorsports don’t have much in common. But to be a success in both, you need to know when to take risks and make instant decisions, with plenty of twists and turns expected along the way. Our guest speaker, Matty Street, can attest to the similarities between the two.

As CEO of award-winning Team Karting, Matty caught the racing bug and started out driving go-karts aged 11 which led to further education studying motorsport engineering and logistics. 

From starting out as a racing marshal to eventually buying the business, Matty has benefited greatly from ongoing support from the Hub's Mentoring, Workforce Development and Access to Finance teams. 

Now running as a family owned business with a social heartbeat, and relaunched by the Mayor of Rochdale at the end of 2017, Matty is taking Team Karting to new levels of success.

Register to hear from Matty on the challenges and obstacles he’s already faced and overcome, and how he's turned his dreams into a successful career. 

You will also be given the opportunity to network with the growing community of SMEs in Rochdale.
