TechHub University - Manchester

We are delighted to be announcing the TechHub Manchester Micro-Accelerator, TechHub University.

One of the key benefits of TechHub is access to a community of startup experts and mentors. This ecosystem has already been helping TechHub Manchester companies with some dramatic results. Now we want to bring this condensed help into a compressed acceleration program.

The program has been put together with input from successful entrepreneurs and tech investors such as Balderton Capital, Connect Ventures, EVGroup and AXM to make sure the critical topics are covered.

The Micro-Accelerator is completely free for all TechHub members and is a 8 week program of half day sessions on the essentials of startup success, culminating in the TechHub Manchester Demo day.

After the 6 week program is complete there will be TechHub Manchester Demo day with top European investors, and industry commentators coming to Manchester to view the innovation and talent on offer.

Each topic will be delivered by subject matter experts with additional mentoring available afterwards. This is an invaluable opportunity to learn from the best.

The course will begin early 2014, with final dates to be confirmed.
