Central Working expands Manchester space to “fuel Northern start-up growth”

Flexible office provider and Barclays' Escalator launched site last year and have recently added DotForge and Ignite accelerators

Co-working office space provider Central Working, winner at the Startups Awards, has announced the expansion of its Manchester Deansgate site and is looking to accommodate “a fresh wave of small and medium businesses and start-ups”.

Having opened the site last year with Barclays’ Escalator, the Manchester workspace is now twice its former size at 10,000 square feet and Central Working say it will help “play a key role in realising the government’s Northern Powerhouse ambitions” with over 13,000 start-ups said to have launched in Manchester in the last year.

Its Manchester site, which combines desks, events and meeting spaces, has recently welcomed Tech North, part of the Tech City UK network, and start-up accelerator DotForge and Ignite as new members.

Central Working co-founder and CEO, James Layfield, commented: “Northern England has recently enjoyed some fantastic examples of inward investment, but it will ultimately be the entrepreneur who fuels the Northern Powerhouse.

“I’m delighted to open this expanded Central Working club which will help the growing business community in the north flourish and further drive the UK economy.”
