The Made in Bury Business Academy was launched in April 2016 in conjunction with Bury Council, working with a limited number of carefully selected start-up businesses to give them the best possible start to develop their business.
IF YOU ARE A BURY BASED BUSINESS UNDER 2 YEARS OLD AND WOULD LIKE TO FIND OUT HOW THE BUSINESS ACADEMY CAN HELP YOU PLEASE GET IN TOUCH.
Statistics show that 40% of start-up businesses fail within their first year, 70% of start-ups don't make it to their 5th year of business and only 9% see success with ten or more years under their belt. The Made in Bury Business Academy was launched with a goal in mind to improve the survival rates of local start-up businesses.
From individuals who have no formal business background to larger businesses which are just branching out to work independently, the Made in Bury Business Academy welcomes a huge range of businesses, providing opportunities to learn a wide range of skills, share experiences and share best practice.
Each module in the Business Academy is designed to educate and inform start-ups about the potential obstacles which can be detrimental to growth, how to prepare for them and how to make the most of the numerous positive opportunities and support facilities which are available to ensure success.
With prolific guest speakers the Made in Bury Business Academy has seen extraordinary success over the past 5 years, and if you are a start-up business who would like to find out about the 2022 Business Academy, simply email email@example.com
Brunch Club is an exclusive, ladies-only networking group who meet on the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month. After plenty of research, Made in Bury found that women network differently to men, building working relationships alongside friendships, developing trust through conversation and a relaxed, informal environment.
This struck a chord with Debi, founder and managing director of Made in Bury, so she teamed up with Kate, the Centre Director at BusinessLodge to host a bi-monthly networking group, with a twist!
Instead of getting up early and rushing through breakfast, or trying to squeeze as much as you can out of a lunch break, brunch was the perfect solution, particularly because BusinessLodge take the opportunity as often as they can to show off their culinary skills! Brunch Club is a friendly and lively group where you can sit back and enjoy your brunch without the pressure of your usual networking group!
If you would be interested in joining Brunch Club, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Made in Bury understand that many people find networking events difficult to attend, particularly if you don’t know who is going to be there, what sort of questions you should be asking and how to figure out if you have anything in common with the people you’d like to speak to!
To solve this problem and to help break down barriers, Made in Bury host a number of fun, themed networking events throughout the year, placing everyone on a level ground and giving them something to talk about!

The Made in Bury Annual Football Tournament
The football tournament is without doubt one of the most anticipated networking events of the year. Hosted at PlayFootball, 24 teams will play against each other to win the trophy (and receive all the recognition and credit, of course!), before refuelling with a hearty plate of pie, mash and peas.
The football tournament gets booked up extremely quickly, so if you would like to enter your team, email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
