• #MadeInCambridge Afterparty - TBA

    Makespace Classroom (Exclusive Use)

    Makespace-members afterparty for #MadeInCambridge - starts at 9.30pm in the classroom, setup in the classroom from 5.30pm

  • Office Hours @cammakespace (Moving to online only for now)

    Starting again this Friday (1 May) I will host office hours online with the goal of growing businesses. The immediate objective is to gather people running, or thinking about starting, businesses in order to share best practice for exploring market potentials, planning, managing, developing, producing and selling product. The idea is to learn from each other in informal discussions, perhaps to float a few ideas, a strategy, or test some assumptions. The format will be open, flexible and very practical. The best way to learn is from experience. Hearing how others worked through problems will allow you to learn from their experience, and they from you. Might save you from making the same missteps. It is not meant only as a one-to-one discussion. It works best when several people, each at a different point in the grow of their company, contribute with questions, information, and stories. I will be on Skype. Please ‘skype-in’. I will provide skype details to people who sign up to attend. We will continue the challenge format in which we seek to solve any business problem in about 30 min. Please do let me know, in the comments below, if you want to present a challenge. All are welcome. About me I have been mentoring start up business for over 10 years. I have 25 years experience in product development and running businesses in several sectors and countries. Have gone from idea to exit and reinvestment. My linked in profile is as good a summary as any; https://www.linkedin.com/in/wardhills
