Manchester Tech Incubator looks to the future

December 7, 2018 by  

After recent progress, the Manchester Tech Incubator (MTI) now houses a wide range of innovative firms.

The centre now contains specialists in cyber security, a pair of blockchain start-ups and a digital health enterprise which uses artificial intelligence. Numerous other tech firms have also used the incubator for a longer period of time.

The collaborative workspace accommodates approximately 100 people at the present. Demand for graphic design may be boosted by the growth of future oriented organisations. MTI is run by Manchester Science Partnerships. The first six months of the incubator illustrated that the partnership model has a great deal of promise.

Tom Renn, the managing director at Manchester Science Partnerships, told the Manchester Evening News:

“We look forward to welcoming the final businesses who will take the remaining places over the coming weeks.”

Manchester City Council is one of the organisations involved in this cooperation between the public and private sectors. Manchester Metropolitan University and the University of Manchester are also involved in the project. In addition, Bruntwood SciTech and Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust take part in the collaborative partnership.

Council leader Sir Richard Leese is an enthusiastic backer of the scheme. He recognises the potential value of the tech industries to his dynamic city. The council has invested at least £2 million to make the incubator happen.
