Venturefest 2017 Innovation Showcase Competition


Submission Deadline: Thursday 6th July 

Funding Available: £40,000

Organised by Business Growth Hub, the Innovation Showcase Competition is one of the highlights of the Venturefest Manchester 2017 programme.

Open to businesses from across the North West, this year the competition has two awards – one for the best start-up business (trading for less than three years) and another for the best established business (three or more years trading). This is in recognition of the distinct differences impacting businesses in each category of the competition. Each award comes with a £20,000 business support package for the winner.

The competition is free to enter, and all a business needs to do is fill in a short online form on the Venturefest Manchester website.

If shortlisted for either category, the business will then receive pitching advice and support by finance specialists from within the Growth Hub and make a short three-minute presentation at Venturefest Manchester, which takes place at Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall on Thursday 14th September.
