A new business networking initiative is being launched by Manchester's Jewish Representative Council in an effort to bolster business opportunities for Jewish entrepreneurs.
JnetManchester will offer monthly meetings attended by leading business professionals from across the Jewish community and Greater Manchester.
A launch event next Tuesday at Manchester Maccabi in Prestwich will begin the sessions which will see guest speakers such as Business Link North West director Peter Watson and Manchester tycoon Vikas Shah. The initiative is being run by Representative Council vice-president Michael Samuels.
He hopes the group will raise money for the Council which will benefit from a chargeable Jnet business angel consultancy service.
"It's hoped to raise the profile of the rep council. This is adding value to the community and the Jewish businessman who is suffering like everyone else."
Tuesday's event will hear Will Kintish, who runs a Manchester-based networking consultancy.
