The mixed-use developer is looking to offer early-stage tech companies a six to 12 month development programme and establish a tech hub in what’s often seen as the UK’s second city.
The programme, Exchange, which looks to support over 200 individuals, has opened applications for its first cohort in partnership with government-backed network Tech Nation.
Exchange will be situated in Allied London’s Bonded Warehouse, part of Enterprise City, a two million sq ft tech, media and cultural cluster in the heart of Manchester city centre.
Michael Ingall, founder and CEO of Allied London, said: “Exchange is a key part of the Enterprise City vision, reinforcing the beginnings of a renowned place for innovators, creators and trailblazers.
“From world-leading technology companies to media production studios, we have attracted huge brands to the new district already, and the Exchange programme intends to grow the UK’s next best start-ups as a result of the environment we are creating.”
The programme hopes to encourage growth in the startups selected by providing flexible workspace, focused workshops, up-skill sessions and high-profile speaker events and panel discussions.
