Manchester’s Exchange programme appoints new entrepreneur-in-residence

Mark Kuhillow

Exchange, the Manchester-based tech scale-up support scheme, has appointed serial media and tech entrepreneur Mark Kuhillow as entrepreneur-in-residence.

The appointment follows Kuhillow’s exit from SaaS online marketing platform SingleView, following its acquisition by Awin.

The media and digital marketing veteran started working in online businesses in the late 90s and has three decades of experience to draw upon. He will mentor and advise the current cohort of over 30 ambitious entrepreneurs that are members of the programme, and welcome the latest cohort of start-ups set to join the scheme in March 2023.

Applications to join Exchange’s latest cohort of tech start-ups opened in early December, with judging and next stage interviews set to take place at the end of January 2023.

Since July 2020, the Enterprise City-based tech scale-up support scheme has supported more than 450 people from over 100 businesses that have created over 120 jobs. Its start-ups have raised more than £10m in funding on their growth journeys to date.

Kuhillow is currently focusing on re-immersing himself in the tech and digital community and is seeking to support a number of companies in advisory roles. He said: “I have a passion for innovation and tech, making this role perfect for my ambitions following the acquisition of my last business. I want to contribute in some way to the exciting Manchester tech scene that is evolving in the city centre. It has completely changed from when I was at the same stage as many of the Exchange businesses. I’m looking forward to rediscovering my roots and being back at the centre of the city’s tech scene at Enterprise City.”

Now in it’s third year, Exchange seeks to support the UK’s next generation of tech businesses reach their full potential. It offers ambitious entrepreneurs and their businesses a physical base within Department Bonded Warehouse in the city’s Enterprise City district. Alongside access to workshops, a community of likeminded entrepreneurs, an experienced partner and advisory network, and opportunities for funding by its VC partners.
