TechHub, a community and workspace hub designed to nurture technology startups, is opening a collaboration space in Manchester - its first outside London.

The Manchester base will include 50 permanent desks for resident startups and 'drop-in' workspace for annual members requiring an occasional space in which to work and network.

TechHub Manchester will open in mid-November over two floor's in Carver's Warehouse in Piccadilly as part of a deal with property investment and development company Town Centre Securities.

Its mission will be to 'foster the startup culture of technology innovation and ensure entrepreneurs have the support to ensure the success of their products'.

Prior to commencing the project, Doug Ward and Shaun Gibson toured the UK to meet key players in startup communities across the country as part of the forthcoming Tech Britain initiative.

They're joined by experienced technology entrepreneur Ben Hookway and Martin Bryant, managing editor of online technology news publication The Next Web.

TechHub co-founder and CEO Elizabeth Varley said: “We couldn't be more delighted to be joining forces with the team at TechHub Manchester, or more excited about the innovation and talent we've seen on our visits to the city.

"Right now, Manchester is buzzing, and we see it as an excellent addition to the growing TechHub network. I'm looking forward to greater collaboration between entrepreneurs and tech companies in the North and South of England."
