Manchester Startups 2.0 logo

Welcome to the first edition of Manchester Startups 2.0.

These 25 founder-led startups are not backed by venture capital. Bootstrapped, pre-seed or angel-backed, the enterprises are in the early stages of their journey and either building or harnessing a unique technology.

We invited nominations from our readers, key figures in Manchester’s tech scene and an array of incubators, accelerators and co-working spaces. Most of the successful companies applied with detailed explanations of their technology, successes to date and plans for the future.

Whether they are already making waves in the market or building a pre-revenue product with potential, the passion of this next generation of entrepreneurs is clear.

We wish them every success and will be following them on their journey.

TechBlast is taking Startups 2.0 to more UK cities this year and next – subscribe to our Wednesday lunchtime newsletter to keep in the loop and for a weekly dose of entrepreneurial stories, startup growth advice and investor news.
