Lewis was born and raised in Bolton where he received a scholarship to Bolton School before attending Loughborough University to study Sociology.

On his return from uni, he launched a nutrition company with US fitness celeb Shaun T, flying him to the UK and running 3 sell-out events across Manchester and London.

When asked how he’d like to get involved with Forever Manchester, he replied: “Being based in the Natwest Entrepreneur Accelerator means I can access a large range of growing businesses across the city and get them involved in donations and community initiatives for the charity.”

“I also attend a lot of networking events across the city so will be able to drum up sponsorship fairly quickly for any personal challenges I decide to undertake.”

Lewis also speaks with great passion about Manchester: “Manchester is the best city in the world. We have the best music, the best sports teams, the best culture, and also the fastest growing creative community in Europe.”

“Unlike other major cities, Manchester thrives on collaboration. There’s enough work out there for everyone and it’s so refreshing to see businesses pulling together to raise the profile of Manchester on the business scene.”
