We are passionate about shouting out the entrepreneurs, businesses and individuals who are making Manchester such a vibrant, talented, and innovative city. As a result, we’ve been working closely with businesses from different sectors to discover who they are and what they bring to this incredible city. As part of our ‘Get to Know’ series, we take a deep dive into the work that our partners do, spotlighting their business to help make a difference to the community. MYP’s purpose is to provide dynamic young people with the tools they need to network and grow in their chosen industries while also providing them with access to a multifaceted community that supports their career goals.
In our city of opportunity, we thrive on creating networking events in Manchester that give professionals the chance to meet like-minded people and grow and develop in a place that we’re fortunate enough to call home.
MYP is teaming up with Time Finance, a financial institution driven by experts that offer a wide range of financial services and products. Not only will we be shouting about the excellent work they carry out, TIme Finance will also be partnering with us for our upcoming events including the Supper Club occurring on the 24th of February at The Firehouse.

How important is community?
Kate, Time Finance’s Marketing Manager gave her insight into what community means to them:
“Business communities keep economies thriving. Offering a network of support to budding entrepreneurs or established businesses is essential – whether that’s through funders like ourselves providing financial support, our financial advisory peers providing guidance, or helping business professionals to grow and develop through initiatives like Manchester Young Professionals. We’re proud to continue expanding our partnerships with those that give back to local communities and support that growth”.
Kate has been a firm supporter of MYP and our ongoing events and initiatives we put in place in order to guide young professionals in advancing their careers. It is because of this fantastic support that MYP and the businesses we collaborate with are able to continue building a strong community.
