My new gig: Curating a creative & tech start-ups programme

I’ve just started a new project with Wired Sussex to curate the start-ups programme for creative and tech entrepreneurs in The FuseBoxThere’s more background and info about what I’m working on right now over on the Wired Sussex blog.

It’s very exciting for me personally having started, grown and left a company myself here in Brighton and experienced first hand the vibrancy of this part of the economy. I also believe that the creative and digital industries have huge potential to solve some of the big problems that the world faces today and enrich life for everyone. So it’s a real honour to play a part in setting up something new to deliver on this.

I’m going to be spending about two and a half days per week on this for about six months so I still have time for event speaking, mentoring and running The Brightoneers.
