Business Weekly, anchored in Cambridge UK, has been ahead of the curve in identifying and profiling present and future stars in industry, technology and academia since its inception in May 1990.
The independently owned venture has been backed since foundation by serial entrepreneur, Dr Hermann Hauser – a member with Bill Gates of the Silicon Valley Visionary of the Year pantheon.
Dr Hauser argues that before Business Weekly (www.businessweekly.co.uk) was launched the Cambridge and East of England business scene was disjointed and lacked focus.
Now one of the world’s most highly rated B2B and technology websites in addition to its cutting-edge print edition and digital versions, Business Weekly has maintained its lead position in promoting industry, science and technology through a number of initiatives.
These include its Killer50, Ones2Watch and Global Gamechangers rankings and profiles. Business Weekly’s Killer50 – the hottest 50 technology companies in the East of England – has provided the platform for the revolutionary online Cambridge Cluster Map (www.camclustermap.com), which is opening up Europe’s ideas capital to a new world of business.
The Cluster Map venture was devised by transatlantic angel investor Sherry Coutu with support from Cambridge University, Business Weekly and local technology entrepreneurs and made flesh by the award-winning Trampoline Systems team which also created the Tech City map so admired by Prime Minister, David Cameron.
Business Weekly covers every facet of business activity, from construction to the legal and financial professions; from aerospace to automotive; and from manufacturing to retail and agriculture.
But its tour de force is clearly its market-leading coverage of the three technology segments driving job and wealth creation in the Cambridge hinterland – ICT, BioMedTech and CleanTech. It also has a ‘cradle to the crown’ ethos, promoting inventors, startups and SMEs as well as large, established corporates.
Business Weekly launched its own social network for startups and budding entrepreneurs in November 2011 in the form of CambridgeElevator.com, where new registrations continue to flourish. The site links people with ideas and the mentors and investors who can turn them into commercial successes.
The cross-media venture has also put down strong roots in the UK’s academic and research communities to highlight scientific and engineering breakthroughs that are life and game-changing.
The annual Business Weekly Awards event, running since 1990, has consistently identified star companies of tomorrow well ahead of their rise to world class – notably superchip designer ARM, software star Autonomy and wireless doyen CSR.
Business Weekly has become a facilitator for the region’s GDP growth, helping corporates identify new global markets for their products and services through astute export initiatives in print and online.
This business building role is enhanced through a series of long-standing partnerships with powerful influencers such as the University of Cambridge, UK Trade and Investment, Stansted Airport, Anglian Water and ARM.
