Kentish Cluster member Daniel Tannenbaum from Wizzcash.com rounds up last Friday’s runaway success.
The Kentish Cluster – a networking opportunity
Companies from all over Kentish Town joined together for the first Kentish Cluster last Friday night at The Grafton. The networking event aims to bring together the different companies based in NW5, giving people a chance to know their neighbours and strike up business partnerships. There is a strong focus on tech companies, but because technology plays such a vital part in any business today, events are open to all.
Led by James Eder, founder of The Beans Group, also known as Student Beans, he told the 70-strong crowd: “Moving to Kentish Town last November, we discovered a number of award-winning businesses not just in Highgate Studios but in the whole area. We’re becoming a mini-Silicon valley. We thought it was about time that we all introduced ourselves and got together.”
Other Kentish companies present included Mumsnet, wizzcash.com and Softwire. Zoe Cunningham, MD of Development company Softwire explained the synergies of working with partners nearby: “We can form much more meaningful relationships with our neighbours and see them on a regular basis.”
Regular Kentish Cluster networking events will be held at the end of each month – the next one taking place on Thursday 29th May at The Vine. Attendance is free and everyone is invited.
