The Cambridge Technology Cluster – a blueprint for the future?
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Jo Griffiths.
Could the Cambridge hi-tech cluster offer a blueprint for the future of the UK economy? Cambridge firms have a much higher success rate than average and were more resilient to the technology downturn than Silicon Valley firms – but is a recent fall in the number of start-ups cause for concern? Dr Elizabeth Garnsey, Reader in Innovation Studies at Cambridge University, has been tracking the progress of Cambridge tech firms since the 1980s. She will describe some of the innovative business models followed by Cambridge companies and invite discussion on the strengths and weaknesses of the Cambridge model.
