On Wednesday 25th July, the space and services provider that fosters collaboration, WeWork, is hosting an evening (6.30 – 8.30pm) of engaging conversation and thought-provoking panel discussion, bringing together the best creatives in the area to toast to the business and innovation hub that is Manchester.
Taking place at WeWork 1 St Peter’s Square, the event – We, The Creators: Manchester – is completely free to attend and will offer local entrepreneurs, creatives and the business community the opportunity to speak to like-minded individuals about their passions, experience and motivations, over cocktails, snacks and music. The evening will centre around an exciting panel discussion, which will feature Tom New (Founder, Formisimo), Matt Walsh (Founder, Beat Stream) and Walli Ullah the President of TiE the world’s largest entrepeneurs network, with more names to be announced soon.
We, the Creators: Manchester is part of a Summer event series from WeWork in celebration of The Creator Awards. A purpose-led event, The Creator Awards furnishes individuals, start-ups and SMEs with the extra funding they need to take their ideas to the next stage. The awards are available to ‘creators’ in three different categories (‘Performing Arts’, ‘Nonprofit’ and ‘Business Ventures’) with the intention of offering an opportunity to as many different people as possible. Entrants are invited to apply via a simple online form and finalists for each category will then be invited to pitch their projects and businesses at the UK’s Regional Finals in October.
Manchester has been chosen as a location for the event series due to the city’s thriving entrepreneurial and creative communities, demonstrated by the incredible creatives that will be on the panel. Leni Zenimer, WeWork General Manager, UK & Ireland, comments: “We’re very excited to bring our annual We, the Creators series to Manchester. With two WeWork spaces open in Manchester, we know of the entrepreneurs in the city and we’re really excited to bring them together and share what is set to be an evening of inspiration.”
