Organised by Business Growth Hub, part of The Growth Company, the contest is one of the highlights of the Venturefest Manchester 2017 programme, sponsored by Avensure, Appleyard Lees, Catax, Lombard, NatWest and Pomegranate Consulting.

Open to businesses from across the North West, the competition has two awards – one for the best start-up business (trading for less than three years) and another for the best established business (three or more years trading). This is in recognition of the distinct differences impacting businesses in each category of the competition. Each award comes with £20,000 worth of business support for the winner.  Unfortunately we did not win the top price, but came runners up.  We had a great day and met some great new contacts and made some new friends.

I was recommended to TileMaster through a third party and got in touch with them. I found them to be ultra professional in every way. They attended the property in order to give me a quote on the project within 24 hours and delivered the quote to me the same day. They are all genuinely very easy to deal with, polite and are a friendly team of people to undertake your project for you. Their communication was excellent and the quality of their workmanship was of an exceptionally high standard. I am very happy to give them a high recommendation and will use them on any future projects without hesitation.read more

Just come back from a 2 days training on the Tile Master course for Tile, Stone, Cleaning and Refinishing and boy I learnt so much. Both Alex, Martin and Lee provided excellent training both from a theory and practical perspective. Great laugh, lovely lunches and even a night out for a curry and a few beers. The support they offer and the passion they have for this business is second to none. Well worth every penny.read more
