Manchester partners with Spacehive

February 12, 2015 Chris Gourlay

We're very excited to have partnered with the city of Manchester on an ambitious initiative to help crowdfund amazing local projects! 

#MakeMCR is a new hive with a mission to make it as easy as possible for Mancunians to run successful campaigns - with match-funding, media coverage and other useful things. It's already backed by Manchester City Council and the city's charity, We Love Manchester, and over the coming weeks a string of other partners will be joining them.

Check out the video below to give you a feel for what it's all about and drop us a line if you're interested in getting involved.
