Describing itself as a technology, music and investment summit like no other, Business Rocks will be taking over Manchester Central on 21 - 22 April, with 48 hours of exclusive networking, pitching, learning, a Hackathon, cinema screenings, and live music.
The team expect ‘5,000 founders, innovators, investors, mentors and a new generation of dreamers all under one roof to innovate the technology market,’ and have secured Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak to headline an all-star speaker lineup.
"EU - In or Out?" will be the event’s big televised debate asking the tech community to decide on how the referendum will affect their firms.
