Who wants a piece of Cake?

I am really excited to announce the launch of Cake — a free bimonthly meet up for creatives, designers, developers, entrepreneurs and anyone else who fancies a good chin wag and evening of good beer, pizza and inspirational talks in Loughborough.

The aim of the event is to build on the already thriving design and entrepreneurial communities in Loughborough by bringing everyone together to make new contacts, learn a few things and share ideas.

Kicking off on the 23rd April at Loughborough’s finest Pizzeria, Peter’s the first event will feature 3 great talks from 3 great guys, Liam Doolan, Ed Williams and Nick Bygate.

Liam is the co-founder at Comb, a search and discovery fashion app which is currently going through a round of seed funding. It’s a fricking awesome app that has the potential to really shake up the fashion industry, trust me!

Ed is the Managing Director at gourmet confectionary brand Candy Kittens who make ridiculously tasty sweets. Consistently selling out in the likes of Waitrose and Selfridges, and having just launched across the pond in a little town called New York, their quest for candy world domination is well underway.

Nick plies his trade at London/Rutland Water based web design and build power houses MMT Digital as their Client Services Director. There he handles their accounts with the likes of Bacardi, Compare the Market and start up media outlet, the BBC.

Don’t act like your not impressed *insert Ron Burgundy voice here*.

I am really excited about the prospect of these gents presenting. They have a wealth of knowledge across the board on design, start ups and workflow that could really help anyone attending the event, not least me!
