Show Notes 77: CamTechWeek 2024 – the launch episode

As the official podcast partner to Cambridge Tech Week 2024, we’re delighted to run our first full episode dedicated to the event, starting with the panel at the Cambridge launch, and an interview with Russ Shaw from the London launch event.

The Cambridge event really highlighted the desire to bring the outside in – to create a SXSW for Cambridge and the tech space, where the objective is to bring the outside in. The panelists (Carmen Palacios-Berraquero, CEO, Nu Quantum, David Moore, CEO, Pragmatic, Pam Garside, Chair, Cambridge Angels, and Harriet Fear MBE) had an open discussion about innovation, funding, and challenges of growth, as well as sharing feedback on last year’s event and their wishes for 2024.

As one of the events ‘ambassadors’, Russ Shaw, Founder of Tech London Advocates, talked about Cambridge’s global reputation for Science and Innovation – “Cambridge punches enormously above its weight in terms of its size and scale”.

We also caught up with Douglas MacDonald, Partner at Mills & Reeve who heads up their national tech sector who are also one of the event sponsors (others include Rathbones, Cambridge Management Consulting, UK Telecoms Innovation Network UKTIN, HSBC and Cambridge Consultants).

Finally, we caught up with the man himself, chair of the organising committee Chris Bruce, to find out which three words are on the top of his mind for 2024.

In this week's Tech News we have Monumo, Hanwha Phasor, QPT, Cinema8 and Sylvie Russell from Cambridge Clean Tech.
