Listen: What is the Cambridge Phenomenon?

Posted 13 Sep 2013 by Sue Keogh

Charles Cotton joins Cambridge 105 presenter Sam Davies to talk about the past, present, and future of the Cambridge Phenomenon.

Charles explains the origins of the term itself and outlines the incredible growth of the Cambridge tech cluster over the last fifty years, which has seen ambitious start-ups become multi-million pound global businesses. As anyone who has worked within the cluster knows, part of the Cambridge approach is to share knowledge and encourage new businesses and talent coming through, which in turn generates more innovation and enterprise in the region.

Contributing to the programme are Walter Herriot OBE and Warren East, ex-CEO of ARM, who explore their own experiences as part of what is arguably Europe's leading technology and biotech cluster.
