Connected Cambridge Special Interest Groups

CC runs a number of Special Interest Groups. If you have an idea for a Special Interest Group which is in the interest of the membership (and not just an opportunity for you to sell something!) as well as the energy to make it happen within our brand/infrastructure, then we want to hear from you. We will, however, be choosy and will respond to member feedback when deciding which SIGs endure and which do not.

E-mail or call 07951721110 with details of your idea;

Connected Cambridge – Co-Creation (C4)

This group has been inspired by the positive interaction between Connected Cambridge and the ARU Enterprise Society. At our meeting on November 30th we undertook to:

  • form a sub group of Connected Cambridge which supports very early stage enterprise projects like those from ARU Enterprise Society;
  • offer (a modest amount of) advice, mentoring, encouragement, contacts;
  • engage with ARU Enterprise Society events and activities and welcome them into Connected Cambridge Events;
  • sustain and develop  the relationship in the long term

Connected Cambridge – Career Transition Group

This group is designed for those who are in the middle of, or foresee in the near future, a need to make a significant change in their career. Whether you are moving to self employment, downshifting or upgrading to a fulltime job, the CTG aims to provide a forum for mutual support and advice.

The CTG holds monthly meetings at the CB2 Bistro, Norfolk Street. We aim for a mixture of presentations by guest speakers and war stories from among current members and CTG alumni. CTG events are free (beyond buying a coffee or glass of wine off the venue providers).

See Events Tab for upcoming meetings.

Please register your interest by email to the event organiser, Andrea Lorenz so that seating can be reserved as appropriate.
