Mission Statement

Enterprise City UK: A New Digital, Tech and Creative Eco-System for Manchester.

Enterprise City is infrastructure. It’s not just infrastructure for new enterprising businesses that have very quickly harnessed new technologies, but also established businesses – film, TV and music businesses, media, retail and the creative sectors. It will equally be infrastructure for those that want to start or develop a business, particularly those operating in the digital, technology and creative industries.

It’s at the very heart of a new creative, technological and thoroughly modern place where leading-edge anchor institutions and corporate companies cluster and connect with start-ups, business incubators and accelerators. It’s a new 21st Century digital, technology and creative cluster in a modern, innovative city.

It’s modern industrial city centre infrastructure that supports innovation, growth and opportunity, it will help shape the future economy of Manchester, the UK and become known as an international brand.

A place for innovators, creators and makers; trailblazers, pioneers and leaders. It will be a place where people thrive and flourish, above all will be a place where business and technology can be fused to provide success.

Enterprise City Industries

We think that at the heart of any new digital and tech cluster are the creative industries, in fact we think that at the heart of any enterprise are the creative industries.

These industries will be the foundations of the cluster, they are revered all over the world, they shape our reputation abroad and power our economic growth at home.

Enterprise City wants to capture, enhance and accelerate Manchester’s role in this process. We will ensure that these creative industries benefit from leading new technologies and cutting-edge digital infrastructure to enable businesses to compete on the world stage, we will promote collaboration both at home and abroad to help increase trade in global markets.
