THE CAMBRIDGE BUBBLE – EASTER EDITION LAUNCHES THIS WEEK!

Too much time on your hands in between lectures, supervisions, exams, coursework, labs, sport, drinking, socialising, Cindies, watching films and sleep? Find the Tab too intellectually demanding? Find Varsity and TCS too frivolous? Why not try the all-new Cambridge Bubble?

Launched recently, The Cambridge Bubble is the University’s premier and probably only satirical news website. Featuring all the latest on the Tab’s pun shortage, the developing farce at the Graduate Union and Varsity Cannon as well as much much more, The Bubble boldly goes where no other Cambridge-based news website would bother.

The 10th Technology Ventures Conference (Early-bird deadline 1st May)

A Faster Future: The Accelerating Pace of Innovation

21st June 2013 | Robinson College Cambridge | 8am-6.30pm

 

Join us at the Technology Ventures Conference (TVC) 2013, where we bring together entrepreneurs, investors, technologists, academics, and students to connect, learn and innovate.

To mark the 10th anniversary of the TVC, we explore together the phenomenon in which the accelerating nature of technological progress is leading to profound changes in society. Since the industrial revolution, we have already witnessed the decoupling of economic output and population demographics. With emerging technologies such as 3D printing and whole genome sequencing, will we see the same magnitude of transformation of our society as that of the steam engine? What are the significances of these technologies to our economy, to businesses, and to our everyday lives? With panels on Rapid Prototyping, Synthetic Biology, Big Data and Emerging Technology Markets, the TVC draws upon concrete examples of how entrepreneurs are systematically disrupting industries and paving the way for new sectors to emerge.

We welcome you to contribute your thoughts and look forward to hosting you at the 10th Technology Ventures Conference.
