Being a Founder is tough – there’s no two ways about it
It’s a misconception that being the CEO/MD/Founder means you don’t have a boss – you have several bosses, except now they’re called customers, clients, investors, staff, accountants…the list goes on.
However, scaling your own tech business can also be exhilarating and a monumental accomplishment.
Our Start-Up / Scale-Up track is specifically designed to provide honest, practical and useful advice to anyone who is currently running their own tech start-up or has plans to. We’ll be hearing from people who have the battle scars and have been there and done it, learning why failing fast and failing first is actually a good thing and most importantly we’ll be putting you in a room with like minded people who are experiencing the same challenges and joys that you are!
Join us to network with other Founders, meet investors, and learn from experts!

When it opened in 1906, Victoria Baths on Hathersage Road, Manchester, was described as “the most splendid municipal bathing institution in the country” and “a water palace of which every citizen of Manchester can be proud.” After the baths closed, The Friends of Victoria Baths charitable trust restored the venue which is used as our main venue for the festival.
