A drop-in session for start-ups and early stage companies is being held by MTT  on the morning of May 4th 2016.

Hosted by Manchester Science Park at the Greenheys Building on Pencroft Way, M15 6JJ, the event features Talk Talk founder Neil McArthur.

Entrepreneurs will have a one-to-one meeting with one of the MTT advisors and mentors - George Bettany of Ignite, Ian Currie of Seneca Partners, Steve Strickland-Wright of Cake Solutions, Guy Weaver of KPMG. Peter Lusty, MTT Chief Executive, and Neil McArthur.

Peter Lusty says: “The format is open and free flowing and aimed at helping people get the advice they need to deal with pressing business challenges.

 “The trust is a gateway to match entrepreneurs with appropriate support, services and investment opportunities – and this session is just one way of doing that.

Attendees are being asked to begin with a 5-10 minute summary (slides not required) to include company overview, revenue model and size of market, team, growth targets and challenges.

Start-ups and early stage businesses who would like to attend, please  contact us  and MTT will confirm a time.

The morning will end with a wrap-up discussion followed by a networking lunch. Those who miss out on this session will be contacted about a future session.

MTT’s panel of experienced mentors and supporters provides advice, guidance and investor contacts for the city’s new generation of tech entrepreneurs.

Says MTT Chairman Neil McArthur, Group Innovations Director of Talk Talk, the telecoms business he founded and demerged from Carphone Warehouse Group in 2010:

“I’m really looking forward to hearing the new business ideas. These sessions demonstrate we are doing what we promised – meeting start-ups and early stage businesses at the point they need real advice guidance, and introductions to investors.”
