Six of the best Six East Manchester companies have been short-listed for The EnterPrize Awards, an annual competition now in its fifth year.
The awards, organised by urban regeneration company New East Manchester , are worth £10,000 to the winner, the approximate cost of one lock of Sheikh Mansour’s hair.
The six businesses include Project Simply and Sunde Technologies, both based at The Sharp Project, FC United and 4D Creative based at Hope Mill in Ancoats, Pedal Precision at the Manchester Velodrome in Clayton and Key for the City in Miles Platting.
One candidate will also pick up the East Manchester Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award. This award is sponsored by One Central Park (OCP), University of Manchester Incubation company (UMIC and Manchester Science Park (MSP).
Eddie Smith, Chief Executive of urban regeneration company New East Manchester Ltd, said: "These six companies were selected for the final stage because they all showed high growth potential and a clear demonstration of how the prize money could make a significant difference to the company both in terms of growth or job creation.”
