Supporting tech-for-good start-ups

Strengthening communities in partnership with The Federation, through a grant from Luminate

We’re working with The Federation, in Manchester, to provide free co-working desk space to start-ups that use technology to encourage innovation, support communities to co-operate, or boost people’s health, wellbeing or skills. 

Thanks to funding from Luminate, part of the Omidyar Group, we’ve brought together some of the most exciting emerging social enterprises in north west England. In addition to desk space, we also offer free meeting rooms and access to a peer support network to help teams reach their sustainability, social impact and digital aims. 

Please note, all applications for desk space and support are now closed.

The Federation is Co-op’s community space in Manchester that brings together social enterprises and innovators who care about the world we share. Read about its values or check out its ongoing events series.
