What does Manchester have to offer ambitious digital tech entrepreneurs? We asked the following stakeholders and business leaders to find out. For granular data on Manchester’s digital tech ecosystem – including its companies (and founders), accelerators, and workspaces – see Data Commons.
The Link App is an easy to use Professional to Client communication platform replacing email as a secure and feature-filled alternative. As a Northerner originally based in London, it made perfect sense to relocate the business back to the North when we were looking to expand and set up our head office. In recent years Manchester has seen some developments and investments being made within the technology sector, and I am passionate about it being seen as one of the most progressive cities in the UK in which to run a tech start up.
Outside of our Manchester HQ, we have a team of remote workers based in London and internationally. Our clients are predominantly UK based at the moment, but we do have clients in South Africa and we will look to expand our International sales over the next few years.
PPC Protect is a fully-automated advertising fraud and click fraud prevention platform that helps to ensure advertiser spend is not being lost to fraudulent activity. Two of our founders met while studying at the University of Manchester and we have made this our home ever since. The access to tech talent in the area is incredible, alongside the world-class transport links to Europe and beyond. Plus, the growing number of tech startups in the region makes it the perfect place to find like-minded founders or advisors.
Outside of our HQ in Bolton we also have offices in Nashville (USA), Tel Aviv (Israel) and Antwerp (Belgium), allowing us to pool talent from many different regions and offer a truly global service.
AccessPay is a cloud-based payments and cash management automation provider. It was conceived as a response to a payments landscape that was manual, costly and error-prone.
Manchester is leading the way for digital in the UK, both through its burgeoning startup community, its investment in the next generation of developers and also the role of the city’s universities. We have been working closely with the academic community to deliver strides in AI across payments. We find their insight is valuable to the research and development work we are undertaking as we look to develop our services further.
We are very much part of a global community and at the forefront of real-time and cross border payment technology, actively working to develop a number of innovative products.
