Tenant Admissions Policy
The Sharp Project has been a multi-million pound investment by Manchester City Council, Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) specifically to help grow and build on the creative and digital sector in order to create job and career opportunities in the area.
It is important to create an ecosystem on site which allows this growth to develop, as companies collaborate as well as compete with each other for business.
To enable this we carefully select companies who offer complimentary or additional services which will allow creative companies to develop their skills and support their businesses to grow for example, legal expertise in intellectual property, venture capital funding or specific to sector training.
The Sharp Project’s objectives strictly adhere to the City of Manchester’s economic growth strategy. Working with tenants in this way allows a balanced ecosystem to develop at the Sharp Project and we measure admissions against this phrase:
“ involved in, or support thereof, the making, manipulation or moving around the world of digital content in order to make money and grow the creative digital sector.”
