Are you a Manchester-based digital business? Get listed here…

8 Aug, 2016

We’re looking to list all tech and digital businesses across the North in a new directory, so we’ll be calling out for entries over the next couple of weeks, city by city. Today it’s Manchester!

Don’t worry if you’re not actually based in Manchester, we’re grouping businesses into ‘city clusters’. So, if you’re based in Bolton, for example, we’ll include you on the Manchester city cluster list.

Here are the city clusters we’ll be including in our directory:
