Adam Bird, the co-founder and CTO of one of Nottingham’s brightest and fastest growing technology companies, Esendex said “I think Nottingham’s tech scene needs invigorating.”
Adam started Nott Tuesday in February 2009. Since then the event has gone from strength to strength and is now one of the top technology events in the East Midlands, attracting speakers from across the UK. Adam’s Nottingham based company, Esendex, is now so successful they’re pushing out in the US market. Way da go Adam and Julian, his co-founder. Adam stepped back from Nott Tuesday in the summer of 2010 to focus on his company.
Adam’s goal was to bring together technology people, startups and companies. His vision was to fill the Nottingham tech scene with networking and opportunities.
Adam believes in sharing and benefiting from the experience of others. “Success begets success. The more we can help each other to be successful, the more we all benefit.”
Myself (Nick Barker) and Alexia Leachman also believe in this vision, which is why we’ve taken on the mantel of organising the Nott Tuesday event. Alexia is an enthusiastic and passionate personal branding specialist. Her company is Blossoming brands. Like Adam I’m also a startup founder of a tech company, Aware Monitoring, and I too believe in the power of community.
So every 2nd Tuesday somewhere in central Nottingham let’s meet and make Nottingham a tech powerhouse!!
