“To everyone that ever had a dream, this is proof that if you keep pressing forward, get up every time you get knocked down, you will make it. This has been a long and arduous 6-year journey and
it's wonderful to finally get to enjoy the fruits of our hard labour. I hope my story will inspire others to follow their dreams and never give up even when the going gets tough.” - Nile
Henry, CEO Blair Project Ltd.

Dr. Marilyn Comrie, Director at The Blair Project and CEO of MIAH.
You can’t talk about Manchester’s thriving tech sector without coming across the amazing Dr. Marilyn Comrie, Director at the Blair Project and CEO at the new Manchester Innovation Activities
Hub (MIAH) set to open in 2022.
Based at Circle Square, The Blair Project is a
social enterprise that uses the excitement of building and racing electric go-karts to help marginalised young people explore careers and passions in science, technology, engineering, and maths,
especially girls and young people from Black Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds or low-income households.
After noticing a lack of workshop space and maker space to integrate new technologies into the go-karts, on top of realising the importance of upskilling and reskilling local talent across Greater
Manchester, Marilyn Comrie joined with Bruntwood SciTech to create MIAH – a new workshop space and vocational training centre dedicated to the rapid upskilling, reskilling and retraining of more
than 5,000 local residents over the next 5 years, which will be located at Base at Manchester Science Park.
Marilyn said: “MIAH will make it easier for SMEs to collaborate and innovate new products and services to speed up the green industrial revolution. Since we’ve been part of Bruntwood SciTech’s
network we’ve been able to find the right funding and support to turn MIAH into a reality, including part of the £4m government support secured for Base in the ‘Build Back Better’ Fund.
