'Manchester - A digital future'
Wed 26 April 2017, 07:30 – 09:15 BST
It gives us great pleasure to host an exclusive OBI Property event..
We’ve put together an event designed for the digital, tech creative community, where expert speakers from rising businesses of varying sizes will provide insight into the city’s growth story and what it means for businesses in the city.
The story of Manchester’s advance as a business city and European-class destination over the last couple of decades is well-told. What’s less well known is the advances that the city has made in digital technology. In January 2017, Manchester was named for the first time among Europe’s top 20 cities for digital innovation
Attendees will hear insights from Rentalcars.com, Tunafish Media AppLearn, Tickx. What OBI sees at play is a very Mancunian twist on digital innovation – it’s somewhere where entrepreneurial flair is being fused with advances in tech to build businesses that stand a real chance of becoming “unicorns,” those £1bn-turnover success stories.
