Enterprise City, the new tech, media and creative district of Manchester city centre has launched a web video series lifting the lid on the region’s thriving businesses and their founders.

Enterprise City TV will shine a spotlight on the goings-on in the cultural capital of the north, showcasing the faces and places of modern industry, with a series of in-depth interviews and reports being shared on its website and YouTube channel on a regular basis.

The series, presented by various hosts including BBC presenter, Ben Shires, will consist of conversations with influential figures who have helped to shape Manchester’s past and present success, and those who are paving the way for the future growth of the region.

In the first episode, Allied London’s CEO, Michael Ingall, sits down with Sir Howard Bernstein, Manchester City Council ex-Chief Executive and advocate for investment and growth in Manchester, to discuss the importance of talent development and retention and support for smaller companies in the economic recovery from coronavirus.

Enterprise City TV episode two will look at the current state of play in the world of workspace, and how businesses will adapt to stay competitive. In episode two, managing director of managed co-working concept, Department, explains the evolution of the workplace and how the pandemic has changed our relationship with where we work.

Tanya Grady, head of partnerships at Enterprise City, said: “With so much brilliant work going on right under our nose, we wanted to put a spotlight on some of the successes that are shaping the north as global player in the tech, media and creative industries.

“This video series will give voice to those playing an important part in establishing themselves, and the region, as a hotbed of modern industry. We’ll be creating regular exclusive in-depth interviews with exciting businesses and key stakeholders in the region and beyond, to get an insight on what it takes to create a capital of enterprise.”

In episode three, Pixel Max, alumni of Exchange, the start-up support programme at Enterprise City, will share stories of their triumphs over the past 18 months, and discuss how they are disrupting the immersive events tech scene. The 3D events and conferencing software firm raised £2 million in funding this year, valuing the company at £8 million less than two years after it began.
