We are the North-West UK regional chapter of TiE, the world's largest entrepreneurs network. Our network has tens of thousands of members, in 60 chapters spread across 18 nations, and since 1992 our mentoring programme has added over US$200 billion of net-economic-wealth to organisations around the world.
