I think there’s a video somewhere of me crying announcing Forward (http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/business/government-inject-4m-tech-incubator-8869007) with some of the members at SpaceportX, so I might as well confess that… ☺ it was just something in my eyes before I see any of you, honest (NOT!).

There’s many blog posts to write, ☺ one being just on the hashtag (‪#‎MCRTOP5‬) given it’s traction locally, nationally & internationally but for now I just want to share that I’ll be at Silicon Drinkabout Manchester (@DrinkaboutMCR) over the coming weeks to answer as many questions as I can in person as I realise it’s been very hush hush until the announcement but at this point and on this note I just want to say THANK YOU for the overwhelming support my team and I have received the past days, months & years… we feel very humbled to have the opportunity to serve the community and hopefully when clearer explained, Forward (@ForwardMCR) will be something that we can all leverage to do great things with.

Proud to know as many of the great people I do and I’m inspired by you all daily having the courage to create & support businesses that hopefully are making our city & the world a better place. Always happy to meet new people in the community so if you see me whether at Drinkabout, Startup Brew, a tech event or i’m just eating (unhealthy at the moment!) somewhere then it’s always my pleasure to meet new cool people so please come say hello, if I can ever help, it’ll make me happy to do so.

I’ll be back in touch soon.

Thank you

Doug
