Manchester’s tech start-ups meet their mentors
Behind scenes of Tech Manchester event
A not-for-profit initiative aimed at connecting tech start-ups with potential mentors got into full swing last week.
Tech Manchester’s Meet the Mentor event took place on Wednesday 4th October, bringing together promising tech businesses and more than 60 newly trained mentors.
More than 500 individual mentor conversations took place over a 90-minute period at UKFast Campus.
In the midst of the madness, we caught up with project lead Patricia Keating and some of those attending the event.
Creating an ecosystem of tech mentors is one of the key platforms of the Tech Manchester initiative, which has been backed by entrepreneur Lawrence Jones, the co-founder and CEO of UKFast.
