Manchester's Rising Stars Fund
Business Directory 

The Directory

Some of our Rising Stars come to us with a fully-fledged business, others with a plan they want to set in motion, and some use the skills and confidence they've gained after a successful grant to become entrepreneurs as their ambition grows.

Here is our growing Directory of Rising Stars with businesses or with services for hire, arranged by sector. By using one of these services, you’ll be providing the ideal support to help them to grow and succeed. Please contact them to discuss your requirements. It’s a great way to support fledgling businesses in the most Manc way possible!
