Behind the scenes at Venturefest Manchester

We speak with Best Start-up winner BeatStream

Music start-up BeatStream triumphed at the Venturefest Manchester pitching competition at Bridgewater Hall on Thursday.

The live music streaming app, which allows people to experience the thrill of a gig as it happens, emerged victorious in the Best Start-up category after a live vote by around 650 members at Bridgewater Hall.

Katherine Lofthouse caught up with BeatStream co-founder Matthew Walsh after his firm picked up the trophy to go with a £20,000 prize package and caught up with last year’s winners Nothing But Epic.

She also spoke with Richard Jeffery of organisers Business Growth Hub and event host and serial entrepreneur and investor Professor Vikas Shah.
