Growing Your Business

The Centre for Enterprise offers a wide range of training and courses, which will help develop your organisation to reach its full potential.  

We provide a wealth of business support services specifically for small to medium-sized businesses based in the North West of England. We’ve spent nearly 200 years learning about our city's diverse industries. We're here to share those lessons to help you succeed.

Whether you’re looking to hire future leaders or need training tailored to your business, Manchester Met is here to help.

Our courses are short, practical sessions covering a range of topics and sectors. Dependent on eligibility, there may not be a cost implication to your business.

We love Innospace! The space is ideal for small businesses looking to grow and share ideas with other interesting organisations. It also offers meeting rooms, a seminar room, access to cover all printing needs, great networking opportunities and an overall laid back but professional working environment. The city centre location is superb for the cost of either hot-desking or having a private office. The staff who run Innospace are all super friendly, work hard to solve any issues that come up and clearly care about improving the space on an ongoing basis. If you're a small business, there's honestly zero negatives about Innospace and you should definitely consider.
