Element Events Release Statement on How they are supporting Manchester’s Entrepreneurial Network

In light of the recent news that Manchester is the second most entrepreneurial city in the UK, Element Events has spoken out on how it’s helping to bolster the city’s growing community of young entrepreneurs and ensure the city tops the charts over the next 12 months.  

Manchester stands as the second largest driver of business growth, with a staggering 8,458 new startups added to the city over 2016, with the number only set to rise over the duration of 2017. Manchester comes second to Brighton in the entrepreneurial stakes across the UK with plans to overtake by the completion of this year. Discussing the city’s business development Mayor Andy Burnham has to say, “Our aim should be to be the top. We want to be the UK’s leading digital city.” Manchester has witnessed a considerable increase over the past few years with many startups using the city as its base, getting noticed by many aspiring entrepreneurs.

Element Events takes pride in contributing to the city’s entrepreneurial revolution through its internal business opportunities and mentoring programmes. Through such opportunities, the company’s young professionals are taught the foundations of entrepreneurship within the marketing industry. Element Events nurtures its young entrepreneurs by helping them to build a strong business skill set, providing exciting travel opportunities and making sure all opportunities are accessible to everyone, in spite of previous experience. A spokesperson for Element Events explained that their young professionals “will learn to become more confident and competitive as well as develop great communication skills and grow with the company”.

Element Events shares Andy Burnham’s sentiments that ‘Manchester doesn’t like being second best at anything’. Manchester has a massive sense of pride and community that is evident in every aspect of the city, including the business sector. The company has a clear goal to be number one in everything it does, including encouraging its young entrepreneurs to develop their skills and help Manchester top the entrepreneurial charts.
