Cambridge-based International Internet Company Sponsors Creating Cambridge BIG Xmas Party 2014

genie ventures logoWe’re really excited to announce a new partnership with Genie Ventures, a successful Cambridge-based internet company which boasts a client list including Sky, BT, Hughes Electrical and Dwell (part of DFS), alongside other household names.

The company’s origins date back to 2004 and the launch of Broadband Genie, which has enjoyed a decade as one of the UK’s leading broadband comparison sites. The team has since successfully launched everything from coffee (Kopi, Big Cup Little Cup) to comparison sites (Crowdstorm, Office Genie).

Genie Ventures, founded in Cambridge in 2008, was created as an umbrella company in which to home these disparate niche brands; and has gone on to become one of the leading digital marketing and publishing organisations in the UK.

It now also has an extensive US presence, with marketing campaigns running for clients in more than 60 countries. It has shown continuous forward momentum, even through some tough economic times.

A key to this growth has been Genie Goals, a vibrant ‘pay per click’ (PPC) and Google Shopping campaigns agency. It is working with top retailers, sharing the knowledge and technology built up over a decade online – and earning speaking engagements at some of the world’s leading marketing events.

Genie Ventures is always on the lookout for smart individuals with a passion for marketing, technology and, just as importantly, getting things done. Ciaron Dunne, MD of Genie Ventures, says: “We’d love to speak with anyone interested in a career in online marketing, and are also very keen to speak with PHP developers.”

Groups supporting the BIG Xmas Party 2014: 5 good reasons why

DSCN2596When we first run our first event we decided to use the Creating Cambridge name as an independent organisation which only mission was to facilitate cross pollination of groups. Once people from different groups are gathered under the same roof they realise what else is out there and what amazing new conversations can be established.

Groups over the year have been promoting our events for the following reasons:

  1. finding out about what other groups do and how they operate
  2. cross pollination of people and ideas
  3. creating new collaborations and partnerships
  4. enjoying a pre-packaged party without having to organise it
  5. ensuring that even a minimum attendance to the Christmas Party has its contribution

We often stress the first 3 points when we talk to group organiser but I will spend a bit of attention to the last two this time. Many organisers are very busy and organising a Xmas party is more than trivial; decent venues are often pre-booked and expensive and you need a minimum number of people to ensure the critical mass to have a party.

The Big Xmas Party allows members of a group to simply join the party and network with their fellow members.  Also if a group has even just 2 or 3 people who would like a party but, for the reason described above, it’s difficult to organise one the BIG Xmas Party is the perfect environment for this people to blend in with others and have a great time.

Blue Smile Project is the partner charity for the BIG Summer BBQ 2014

bluesmile-logoWe are very pleased to announce that Blue Smile Project is the partner charity  for the BIG Summer BBQ 2014.  Blue Smile is a Cambridgeshire children’s charity which provides mentoring and counselling in primary schools to help troubled children fulfill their true potential and have happier childhoods. It can quite simply be life-changing. Without specialist support, vulnerable children can go on to develop mental illnesses and anti-social behaviours, which puts huge pressures on local services and costs our community dear. Blue Smile changes that outlook and helps to give children a happier and brighter future… the right of every child.

Once more we will contribute 15% of all tickets sold via groups plus all funds raised from the usual raffle; please come along and help us raise money for Blue Smile Project.

Kathie Neal, head of Fundraising Partnerships for Blue Smile Project commented:  “Blue Smile is really delighted that we are to be the benefiting charity at the Big Summer BBQ this year. We are very grateful for this opportunity to raise awareness of our critical work as well as to be receiving vital donations.”

Tickets are available at Early Bird price until 31 May, buy yours now!
