Today’s an exciting day for UKFast. We can finally announce that we’re investing into Manchester startup Reconfigure.io.
Rob and the global Reconfigure.io team are an incredible group and are working on tech that unlocks increased processing potential within servers.
It’s clear that we all need to work together to speed up the internet and it is innovative startups like this who are leading the way. There are only so many times you can release a new faster chip, or add more cores. That’s why we’ve made the move to become the largest single investor in Reconfigure.io’s current funding round.
Reconfigure.io is unlocking the technology that virtual reality, big data and machine learning need.
Reconfigure.io and Tech Manchester
It’s interesting because this came through our work with Tech Manchester. The community initiative to support local tech startups has introduced Gail and I, and the UKFast team, to a huge range of businesses already and it is only just the beginning.
Tech Manchester is building incredible momentum with 60 mentors already signed up to coach Manchester’s tech startup community. Trish, head of the initiative is doing an incredible job connecting support hubs in the city. Tech MCR is already working closely with the likes of the Business Growth Hub and has met with Manchester Metro Mayor Andy Burnham on several occasions to discuss our tech strategy.
The key to helping Manchester’s growth is undoubtedly collaboration and supporting one another in this way.
