What to expect from MSP at Prolific North Live

Share

The MSP team is thrilled to be joining so many leading businesses and brands at Prolific North Live – an event which grows from strength to strength every year and showcases the huge talent and vibrancy of the digital, tech, and creative media sectors across the North.

After a busy 2017, where we launched our flagship Bright Building at Manchester Science Park in September, and also welcomed the first businesses to Mi-IDEA, our new co-innovation centre in partnership with Cisco, 2018 is going to be another landmark year for MSP as we prepare to launch our new Tech Incubator in Manchester in partnership with the city’s universities, Manchester Digital and Complete Resourcing.

Opening in early May at Bruntwood’s redeveloped Manchester Technology Centre, we’re confident that the Tech Incubator will be the ideal environment for data science and technology innovation businesses to begin their journey.

As a home for the next wave of disruptive innovations and entrepreneurs from across the UK, MSP’s Tech Incubator is aimed specifically at those working in the areas of: Artificial Intelligence, cognitive computing, or machine learning; data analytics; VR & AR; fintech; blockchain; e-commerce; cyber security; cloud technologies; quantum computing; the Internet of Things; smart cities and digital health.

We’ll be launching a special competition at Prolific North Live, giving start-ups the chance to win free desk space for 12 months and access to a specialist business growth programme – in total worth up to £9,500. To apply click here.

The competition is a really exciting opportunity to identify the rising stars of the North’s flourishing digital sector, and we look forward to helping to nurture them through their first steps in business, and supporting them as they scale.

We know that taking the plunge and starting a business can be a daunting prospect, which is why the Tech Incubator will offer much more than just an amazing place to work. It will be a supportive and collaborative community of peers, specialist professional advisers and trusted partners.

At MSP we have always been passionate about creating communities of like-minded businesses in locations where innovation and entrepreneurship come together to drive real growth and impacts. The Tech Incubator is in an unrivalled location: it’s right in the heart of Manchester's Innovation District on the Oxford Road Corridor, and part of Manchester's largest city centre development, Circle Square, soon to be the home of world leading engineering, advanced materials and tech businesses.

The collective expertise and resources of our partners will prove invaluable to new customers at the Tech Incubator - where businesses will join a supportive environment tailored to their needs and become part of MSPs 300-strong community of high-growth science and technology businesses.

Our delivery partners include Manchester Digital - the independent trade body for the sector – which is relocating to the Tech Incubator this year, providing a long-term home for their membership services and events programme - and Complete Resourcing, a specialist consultancy for innovative technology start-ups looking to build world-class teams.

The Tech Incubator’s business growth programme also includes access to funding and finance through the Investor Ladder network, mentorship services, access to R&D resources and specialist professional services from leading advisers including Grant Thornton and KPMG.

At Prolific North Live we will be hosting an exciting programme at our stand (135 - next to the keynote theatre). Come along, meet the team and hear from both MSP and Bruntwood customers, who will be sharing their innovative products inspiring growth stories. Among those attending will be Manchester Digital, Cubic Motion, Lightstart Apps and Kwizzbit.
