Could you be part of the Creative Class of 2012?Topic: Esendex news
Over the last year, Esendex, along with 8 other companies, were chosen to represent Nottingham’s Creative Class for 2011. The businesses selected were those set up in the city and county – and which are expanding and thriving.
Last week our CTO, Adam bird, presented at the Creative Class of 2011 event. The event was held at the Nottingham Contemporary, to celebrate Nottingham’s entreprenerial talent. In his presentation, Adam talked about successes to date and international plans for the future.
Other presentations from the Creative Class 2011 were: Skeleton Productions, a new video production company; specialist in lightweight fibre reinforced thermoplastics Medibord; website performance monitoring firm Aware Monitoring; software development house The Plumtree Group; traditional corsetry and handmade lingerie company Eternal Spirits; wireless fetal heart monitor company Monica Healthcare; computer games software company Lockwood Publishing and Sygnature Chemical Services.
Adam comments about the event;
“It’s great that an event like this is being held, but this isn’t about making me feel good. It’s about showing people what’s possible,” he said. ”We can all be examples to the wider field of business that Nottingham can be a great place to run and develop business and that more people should come and do the same.
“The challenges with this kind of thing is always whether you can get years two and three. I’m confident that there will be a next generation of the Creative Class.”
