We are partnering with our friends at Mashup Lab to host a series of virtual ‘IDEA GENERATING’ workshops and events from Sept 2020-February 2021. If you live in the Truro Colchester region and have an idea for a new business, product or service, check out our Mashup Lab events!
Entrepreneurs get five minutes to share a business idea they have been working on OR an opportunity they have been pursuing OR something that they have been struggling with OR anything else they would like feedback or suggestions on.

Wisdom of the Crowd is normally in person but, due to COVID, sessions will take place online.
Idea Challenge is a five-day challenge for anyone with an idea that needs professional support. It could be an idea for a new product, a new service, a non-profit, a new technology, etc. The idea challenges provide daily challenges, informational video, tools & resources all through a private Facebook Group. Throughout the week, there are live group check-ins. Idea Challenges need 4+ participants to operate.
