A Gentle Persuasion to Collaborate — Organizing and Building the Cambridge Network

The Cambridge Network is a limited liability company that was jointly founded early in 1998 by 3i, Amadeus, Analysys, Arthur Andersen, N.W. Brown, and the University of Cambridge. All of them are shareholders and each takes a seat on the company's board. Professor Sir Alec Broers is its chairman. In March 2001, Dr. Peter Hewkin was appointed the Cambridge Network's CEO.

The network's focus is to encourage the exploitation of ideas and the birth of new ventures. Among others, it was the driving factor in the establishment of the University of Cambridge Entrepreneurship Centre, and has actively promoted the “Technologies of Tomorrow” campaign, which is designed to promote technology teaching at an early stage in the educational system.
