The initiative aims to foster innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship, allowing the businesses enrolled to partner with successful entrepreneurs who have a track record of building, scaling and exiting businesses. These entrepreneurs will provide mentorship, financial guidance, and practical advice to companies that are part of the programme, helping them navigate the challenges of starting and growing a business.
Run by Maven’s local investment team, THE HUB will ensure the widest possible range of vital resources for companies to access, utilise, and benefit from the programme, such as workspace, funding, legal advice, and networking opportunities. By providing the right resources, mentorship, and support, these start-ups and growing businesses can thrive, creating wider opportunities and making a meaningful impact in their communities.
The first event will take place on the 16th May in Manchester with a calendar of future events to follow, bringing together experienced entrepreneurs and promising start-ups across the North West to help build thriving local economies.

“We believe that local start-ups are the driving force behind a strong and resilient economy, and we’ve prioritised designing a programme that provides the right support to enable these businesses to succeed. A key advantage for a business working with Maven is access to different sources of capital as well as the in-house operational expertise of our team. We have backed hundreds of management teams, helping them achieve their growth ambitions, making us well-placed to understand both the challenges a business can face, and the commitment needed to make it a success. That means working collaboratively alongside the team to add value and contribute effectively to the development of corporate strategy, but also provide support in the face of the occasional challenges inevitably faced by a small business.”
