I recently spent a day in Cambridge visiting various start-up / innovation centres in and and around the university. I met with Cambridge Enterprise, Argon Design, and the Judge Business School itself.
For someone who spends his life meeting exciting start-up and scale-up businesses I was amazed by the level of innovation going on. The city feels electric and on the verge of incredible growth.
I'm next up on 2nd November and am looking forward to finding out more!
