WEWORK RETURNS TO CAMBRIDGE AS PART OF INSPIRING EVENT SERIES
WeWork hosts free to attend event to inspire creativity and entrepreneurship in Cambridge, in celebration of ‘The Creator Awards’
On 4th July, the space and services provider that fosters collaboration, WeWork, is hosting an evening (6.30 – 8.30pm) of engaging conversation and thought-provoking panel discussion, bringing together the best creatives in the area to toast to the business and innovation hub that is Cambridge.
Taking place at Tamburlaine Hotel, the event - We, The Creators: Cambridge – is completely free to attend and will offer local entrepreneurs, creatives and the business community the opportunity to speak to like-minded individuals about their passions, experience and motivations, over cocktails, snacks and music. The evening will centre around an exciting panel discussion, which will feature John Elworthy (Editor at the Cambridge Times), Colin Miles (CEO of Somersault) and 2017’s winner of ‘Scale’ category at ‘The Creator Awards’, Christine Kim (Co-Founder of Simprints), with more names to be announced soon. The event will also be supported by the Cambridge Network.
We, the Creators: Cambridge is part of a Summer event series from WeWork in celebration of The Creator Awards. The Creator Awards is an initiative that last year saw WeWork give funding to UK businesses and entrepreneurs. A purpose-led event, The Creator Awards furnishes individuals, start-ups and SMEs with the extra funding they need to take their ideas to the next stage. The awards are available to ‘creators’ in three different categories (‘Performing Arts’, ‘Nonprofit’ and ‘Business Ventures’) with the intention of offering an opportunity to as many different people as possible. Entrants are invited to apply via a simple online form and finalists for each category will then be invited to pitch their projects and businesses at the UK’s Regional Finals in October.
Cambridge has been chosen as a location for the event series due to the cities thriving entrepreneurial and creative communities, demonstrated by the incredible creatives that will be on the panel. Leni Zenimer, WeWork General Manager, UK & Ireland, comments:“We’re delighted to be returning to Cambridge this year for the We, The Creator series. At ‘The Creator Awards’ last year our winners of the ‘Scale’ category, Alexandra and Christine from Simprints, were found in Cambridge and so we’re really excited to be revisiting this community for 2018.”
