About Cambridge Phenomenon Ltd
Cambridge Phenomenon Ltd, founded by entrepreneur Charles Cotton in 2009, has been set up to acknowledge the people, organisations, products, events and initiatives behind Cambridge's unique information technology, bioscience and medical cluster. Our current initiatives have all been stimulated by the 50th Anniversary in 2010 of the Cambridge Phenomenon.
Cambridge Phenomenon Ltd has its origins in one of those serendipitous events that are the inspiration behind many companies. In May 2009, Charles Cotton came across an obituary of the extraordinary life of Tim Eiloart in the Guardian written by Rodney Dale. Most regard the setting up of Cambridge Consultants as the catalyst for the Cambridge Phenomenon. It struck Charles that the following year would mark the 50th anniversary of their initiative and he began to think about how to mark this 50-year milestone. In the true spirit of this remarkable city Charles found plenty of encouragement. A not for profit company was established and Charles invited a group of colleagues to join the Board. In true entrepreneurial style with no clue as to the challenge they were setting themselves Cambridge Phenomenon Ltd committed to organising a conference and producing a book.
