In the currently challenging economic climate, free business events are a fantastic way to find a wealth of opportunity, information and advice to help you grow your small business.
But which ones should you prioritise? We’ve put together a list of the 5 best free events for small businesses in the UK.
Last Thursday we held a meetup! Invitations went out to all Creaters and we were so pleased to meet those who attended. Holding events and hearing from like minded and inspirational people is a great way to share knowledge, experience and learn from speakers - we certainly did! If you couldn’t make it this time, we have a run down of how the evening went below and the opportunity to sign up and come along to our next one!
Create turns 14 today and just like any birthday, we're celebrating and reminiscing over the last 14 years. From when our first customer built their very own website to hosting those of thousands of businesses in recent years. It has been a journey that we're honoured to have been able to share with you.
The Great Create Egg Hunt 2015 was egg-cellant and our biggest yet! With more hiders and a host of new players, this was the one day of the year when putting all of your eggs in one basket pays off.
Hundreds of people used our #egghunt, thousands of Tweets were sent and which were seen by over 3.5 million users. Most egg-citingly, we saw hundreds of you getting out of your shell and making some wonderful connections.
Not only does Create sponsor this annual celebration of ingenuity, innovation and invention but we also popped along with a little creation of our own that got hundreds of people online in an instant.
The automated Create Booth took snaps of makers, families, kids and various other curious Faire-goers and automatically uploaded the photographs to the Create Twitter feed with the hashtag #BMMF so that they could go online and retrieve their image later.
This is the second year of our partnership with this amazing showcase of creativity, invention and ingenuity. Last year we cut our teeth demoing the Create platform to a wide range of people, but this year we've got something a bit special up our MASSIVE SLEEVES.
We've built a fun Photo Booth for folks at the Faire (Sept 7th, Brighton Dome & Corn Exchange) to get themselves snapped in! Take a look at the construction process in the pics below.
For the second year running Create is proud to sponsor Brighton Mini Maker Faire (Sept 7th/8th).
This annual showcase of incredibly innovative invention is a great way to spend a day on the coast.
Immerse yourself in a world of craft, creativity and fun and learn the practices behind the exhibits.
Held at Brighton Dome and the adjacent Corn Exchange, the Faire brings together engineers, inventors and craftpersons united in a common goal: to make you say 'WOW!', be that with a game of One-Dimensional Pong, a ride on a people-powered Scalextric track or even a humanoid robot that knits.
From its humble beginnings in my back room over a decade ago, Create is now a dedicated team of nearly twenty awesome people helping thousands of businesses get their products and services online.
Thanks to everyone who signed up to Create's online shop workshops at Super+Super this month. You'll be happy to hear that thanks to y
