About Venuturefest Manchester

With a unique mix of inspirational speakers, interactive workshops and networking and business opportunities, this year’s Venturefest is lined up to be better than ever. If you’re an innovator, investor, entrepreneur or academic, book your place now!


Vision is seeing the invisible. Just thinking about it isn’t enough. We need to take innovative solutions and make them happen.


Venturefest brings together SMEs with investors, entrepreneurs, innovators and academics to connect and do business. If you’re an innovator, Venturefest is your opportunity to get your idea out there, find investment and accelerate growth.


We showcase the innovative products and services that our region’s most innovative entrepreneurs and progressive SMEs have to offer the world, giving investors the opportunity to be part of the next big thing.


Sticking to our winning formula, but better than ever, the event will include our ‘Innovation Showcase’ competition and our Three Tribes panel, consisting of investors, innovators and entrepreneurs, who’ll shed light on how to commercialise and bring innovative new concepts to market.


Connecting innovation with industry and investment

Last year’s Venturefest Manchester was a showcase of the cutting-edge innovation and entrepreneurship coming out of Greater Manchester. Over 700 entrepreneurs and businesses came together with innovators and academics to fuse fresh ideas with novel research and opportunities for funding.

Trailblazing entrepreneurs shared their stories, while guest speakers and other market leaders presented their unique insights. This year promises to be even better.
