Melbourne embodies the entrepreneurial spirit that is behind the inaugural Mancoolian Awards.

Award-winning Manchester server hosting company Melbourne has become the headline sponsor for a new set of awards which recognise the city’s individual business stars.

Melbourne has been signed up by business networking organisation Downtown Manchester in Business to support the Mancoolian Awards, a new set of awards that will honour the men and women of Manchester who have demonstrated entrepreneurial determination over the past 12 months.

Rob Greenwood, Technical & Commercial Director of Melbourne, said: “We are proud to provide web hosting for many of the companies that make Manchester tick. Sponsoring the first Mancoolian Awards allows us to shout about the talented individuals behind the companies who have helped this city maintain its position at the forefront of business in the UK.”

The Mancoolian Awards are being organised by Downtown Manchester in Business, the independent business club that provides leadership links between the private and public sector organisations in the city.

Michael Taylor, Chairman of Downtown Manchester in Business said: “Melbourne embodies the entrepreneurial spirit that is behind the inaugural Mancoolian Awards. We are excited to have them as our headline sponsor to honour the people who have demonstrated grit, determination and entrepreneurial flair during the past twelve months.”

The Mancoolian Awards will take place in October at the five star Lowry Hotel. Voting is now open for categories that range from ‘Sexy Networker’ to ‘Entrepreneur of the Year.’

Melbourne employs 30 staff at its data centres on the Manchester Technopark and is part of the iomart Group plc, one of the UK’s leading cloud companies.

Melbourne delivers 24/7 support for a wide range of customers and its offices were voted among the 10 coolest places to work by The Daily Telegraph.
