We're working with Accelerated Digital Ventures (ADV) to provide investment advice for early stage digital tech businesses across Manchester.

ADV is actively investing at seed, venture and growth stage in companies right across the UK and Ireland. Notable Manchester-based deals include pre-seed investments through the Ignite accelerator programme and growth stage investment into Push Doctor. Get the chance to meet with two members of the ADV investment team on 22nd November at the Bright Building.

James Foster, Investment Lead: After joining from Northstar Ventures (where he was Investment Manager), James focuses on the transactional side of the investment process; liaising with investees, co-investors, lawyers and all other deal partners. Ensuring deals are executed in a swift manner so founders can get to work on executing against their plans.

Adaobi Adibe, Investment Intern: Currently in her second year studying Electronic Engineering at The University of Manchester, where she is team leader of the partly student-led fund, Campus Capital. Adaobi was also recently voted number one black student in the UK for Future Leaders magazine. Both have extensive experience reviewing potential investment opportunities and will be on hand to provide you with invaluable advice about raising venture investment for your startup.

Please provide a short document or presentation on your company and what you’re hoping to achieve in the near future. After registering on this page, Elisse Grady will be in touch to organise a specific time slot.
