Ten North West Businesses Shortlisted

Ten North West businesses have been shortlisted for the 2017 Innovation Showcase Competition. Digital and creative, manufacturing and healthcare SMEs are among those who will pitch for two prize packages worth £20,000 each at Venturefest Manchester on 14 September.

Organised by Business Growth Hub, part of The Growth Company, the contest is one of the highlights of the Venturefest Manchester 2017 programme, sponsored by Avensure, Appleyard Lees, Catax, Lombard, NatWest and Pomegranate.

Open to businesses from across the North West, the competition has two awards – one for the best start-up business (trading for less than three years) and another for the best established business (three or more years trading). This is in recognition of the distinct differences impacting businesses in each category of the competition. Each award comes with £20,000 worth of business support for the winner.

Oldham’s very own Energimine, a company based in the  town centre have been shortlisted for best start-up.
