Accelerate ME Demo Day

The Accelerate ME Demo Day is back for its fifth year and is set to shake up the Manchester start-up scene once again. Manchester Entrepreneurs identified the most ambitious student and graduate founders from across the University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University, University of Salford, and the Royal Northern College of Music. Fourteen start-ups were selected for an intensive 6-month programme, where they received access to office space at MSP, mentoring, and up to £2,000 of grant funding.

Demo Day marks the end of this year’s programme and is an opportunity for the cohort to showcase their companies in a series of short pitches followed by an exhibition-style networking event where attendees can learn more about the teams. Drinks and light snacks will be provided.
