Mancoolian LogoWe are proud to announce that we have been named headline sponsor for the Mancoolian Awards, a new breed of awards hosted by Downtown Manchester in Business that will honour the men and women of Manchester who have demonstrated entrepreneurial determination over the past 12 months.

From a team of 4, to a company now 30 strong with offices voted among the 10 coolest places to work by The Telegraph, we have always maintained the agility of a small entrepreneur driven start-up. It’s these reasons that the Mancoolian awards are an ideal event for Melbourne to be involved in.

The Mancoolian Awards are being organised by Downtown Manchester in Business, the independent business club that provides leadership links between the private and public sector organisations in the city.

Rob Greenwood, Technical & Commercial Director of Melbourne, said: “We are proud to provide web hosting for many of the companies that make Manchester tick. Sponsoring the first Mancoolian Awards allows us to shout about the talented individuals behind the companies who have helped this city maintain its position at the forefront of business in the UK.”

Having worked with Downtown for a number of years and attended countless events of theirs, we’re truly excited to work with them on delivering the greatest, most memorable awards night Manchester has seen. It’s going to be something special!

Michael Taylor, Chairman of Downtown Manchester said: “Melbourne embodies the entrepreneurial spirit that is behind the inaugural Mancoolian Awards. We are excited to have them as our headline sponsor to honour the people who have demonstrated grit, determination and entrepreneurial flair during the past twelve months.”

The Mancoolian Awards will take place in October at the five star Lowry Hotel. Voting is now open for categories that range from ‘Sexy Networker’ to ‘Entrepreneur of the Year.’
