Manchester is the place to be for bright new start-ups, according to statistics. Last year, the number of new business launches smashed the 14,000 mark. Manchester City Centre and Trafford are up there among the best places in the country for fresh new ventures, which is very encouraging, as the economy thrives on SMEs and new enterprise, which generate new jobs, and a more vibrant community. The culture of collaborative innovation, as well as the pre-existent hotbed of raw talent makes it inevitable that the only way is up for Manchester and the North West, which has seen the recent arrival of Media City.
The sense of optimism, creativity and newness is evident as you walk through the quirky Northern Quarter, and glossy Spinningfields. In a culture dominated by large corporations and famous brands, it’s great to see that the small, independent business is very much alive and well. In the past five to ten years, the demand for bespoke and unique products and services has been soaring.
So if you have an idea, or an invention that you have been putting off taking action with, don’t do so any longer! Take advantage of the opportunities this great city has to offer - you’re in good company...
