Start-Up Day is back!

It’s back! Start-Up Day 2018 is Thursday 20th September.

Meet experts, hear from local entrepreneurs and learn what it takes to run a successful business, featuring special guest Dave Rigby founder of Manchester Three Rivers Gin and winner of Best Male Entrepreneur at the Talk Of Manchester Business Awards 2017.

Dave Rigby is the Master Distiller of Manchester Three Rivers Gin and the Managing Director of its holding company Central Line Holdings Limited.  Dave opened the independent café bar Cuckoo in 2012.
