Kicking off on 2 November, students are being offered the opportunity to attend the event free of charge as honoured guests of the event.

A choice of great workshops will be taking place at select locations around central Manchester, followed by a full day of inspiring talks from game-changing speakers on the 3 November at HOME.

A minimum of 25 places are being provided for successful applicants to the Emerging Talent Fund as part of the conference after the runaway success of this project at Thinking Digital’s flagship conference in Newcastle in May 2015.

To apply, you must be be able to make your case to the Thinking Digital panel of judges that you can make the most of the new ideas and networking opportunities that attending the event will create. 

A judging team made up of representatives from Thinking Digital and their event partners will assess the entries. The successful applicants will receive a pass free of charge to the events and workshops, and a limited number of travel and accommodation bursaries will also be available for successful applicants outside the Greater Manchester area.

Attendance at Thinking Digital Manchester will give young entrepreneurs, innovators and techies the chance to connect with others, share ideas and inspiration and build new relationships. Selected introductions to career opportunities will also be made available as appropriate.
