Manoj founded his first tech startup, a FinTech in electronic invoicing and payments in 2004. He then founded Techcelerate which built Manchester’s tech ecosystem from 2006 to 2013. In 2007 Manoj founded, edocr.com which was recognised in 2008 as one of the hottest 20 tech startups in the UK. In 2013, GP Bullhound acquired Northern Tech Awards from Manoj.
