What is Venture Further?

Sponsored by MSP, Venture Further invited students and researchers from the University of Manchester, as well as recent alumni, to present their business proposals and pitch decks to an expert judging panel. The competition offered an opportunity to win a vital cash injection to help realise their business goals.

Eight Manchester entrepreneurs have been awarded a slice of a £50,000 cash prize through Manchester Enterprise Centre’s Venture Further competition, to help drive progress in their start-ups.

The winning entries were:

  • In the business category, Maximum Wind – software that accurately predicts the best location for on-shore wind farms
  • In the research category, CryoPhyc – a new method of microalgae preservation through freezing
  • In the digital category, MishiPay Ltd – an app hoping to change the way we shop through eliminating queues
  • In the social category, Social Growth – a social enterprise network and social entrepreneur consultancy

Canapes and drinks provided.

We would love for you to join us.
