9781908990617: The Cambridge Phenomenon: Global Impact

Computing, drugs, semiconductors, technology consulting and much more - the extraordinary range of innovations to emerge from the Cambridge cluster of technology companies has had an incalculable influence on the success of other businesses, but as a result has itself remained largely hidden from public view. This book puts Cambridge's contribution into perspective, looking at the different industry sectors and focusing on the personalities whose ground-breaking work has inspired new products, services and business models.

This book tells the important, hidden story of how academic excellence and entrepreneurial endeavour have improved people's lives the world over. It is crucial reading for anybody interested in the ways successful businesses work, and the fundamental role of our great educational institutions in fostering that success.

Her clients include the Cambridge Enterprise Conference, the World Bank and the World Health Organization. She has written books and articles on everything from hot-air ballooning to data modeling and risk assessment for financial institutions. Charles Cotton has been part of the Cambridge technology scene since he came to the city in the 1980s to work for inventor and entrepreneur Clive Sinclair. Since then he has taken technology companies public on the London Stock Exchange and NASDAQ, and been appointed Director of numerous organisations in the academic and business sectors. In 2009 he set up what is now known as Cambridge Phenomenon International to promote the Cambridge technology cluster.
