Startup of the Week - ShareDesk

by: Startacus Admin ~ 14th November 2012
Here at Startacus we get inspiration from all sorts of things - from the first coffee of the day through to discovering the latest quirky pop-up innovation. One of the most inspiring things though is when we find out about people doing their own thing. We thought that we should start giving these people and their Startups a little ‘shout out’, so we’re going to start doing just t...

How bad ideas can turn into fab ideas

by: Startacus Admin ~ 24th October 2012
Guest writer Jo Haigh gives Startacus an honest outlook on taking on two apprentices and surprises herself with the results... "I have recently taken on two young apprentices as part of a Government funded scheme to allow them to complete their NVQ qualifications whilst gaining valuable “on the job” experience. I admit freely that, in the first place, I did not take these people on a...

Startacus looks at Somewhereto_

by: Startacus Admin ~ 22nd October 2012
Getting people doing that thing that they love is a key mantra for us here at Startacus, so anything that helps to spread that mindset is pretty close to our hearts, which is why we love the philosophy of Somewhereto_. Somewhereto_ is a movement to liberate underused, disused and empty spaces in the UK and get everyone thinking creatively about their communities. In simple terms, this means that ...

Open Cinema

by: Startacus Admin ~ 17th October 2012
Here at Startacus, we believe that there are many dormant self starters out there with potentially explosive ideas and inventions. Much like with the Startacus platform, we are hoping to inspire others to pick up their creative tools, we love the ideology of the Open Cinema which is a nationwide network of film clubs specifically programmed and for homeless and socially excluded people. The minds...

The Kaleidoscope Festival - Aiming to Inspire others

by: Startacus Admin ~ 15th October 2012
With its’ aim of ‘inspiring others to do something great’ we are digging the vibe of the Kaleidoscope International Creative Festival which is to be held at the Barbican Hall, London on the 27th and 28th November. A barrier for many creative types is that some ‘how to’ Events and Festivals are more catered for either the techy startup person or the next wannabe Appre...

The Battle of Ideas

by: Startacus Admin ~ 10th October 2012
I am not too sure about you, but when I was at school, I did love a good old classroom debate. Often initiated in one of those personal social education lessons, ( was that what it was called?), the debating of ideas and issues made an otherwise sterile school day seem just that little bit better. How else could you get that teenage angst out, when schooling offered you little chance to let your v...

Good for Nothing - Collaboration for a Cause!

by: Startacus Admin ~ 7th October 2012
Bearing in mind that we look at lots of new websites every day, it takes a lot to get us here at Startacus excited these days. However with Good for Nothing, we reckon we might have just found one of our spiritual cousins - and thought it best to share the good news. Good for Nothing gets smart folk together with a plan - the plan being that they collaborate together to ‘solve stuff that ma...

Kitchenette - the kitchen business incubator

by: Startacus Admin ~ 4th October 2012
Cash is pretty hard to come by these days and as many an entrepreneur knows getting that early injection of the ‘readies’ can be what makes or breaks your business idea. As we ourselves love a dabble in the kitchen, we were really interested to hear about Kitchenette, the first London Kitchen Incubator. Those of us who are aware of business incubators, will understand that a startup w...

Startacus and the Big Draw

by: Startacus Admin ~ 2nd October 2012
Startacus occasionally dabbles at drawing. Not that we can claim to be any good, but we do believe that doing the odd doodle helps get the ol’ creative juices going (especially in dead boring office meetings - when you sketch out the boss sitting opposite). So we were glad to hear of The Big Draw - the month long celebration of...you guessed it...Drawing, that kicked off yesterday and runs ...

by: Startacus Admin ~ 27th September 2012

Startacus tries Trylife

by: Startacus Admin ~ 24th September 2012
Startacus has been keeping an eye on Trylife for the last while. Almost like a late night interactive Hollyoaks or Skins episode, Trylife is a hard hitting interactive online drama that has been launched in the last month or two , although has been years in Development. Although ‘interactive’ TV has been all the talk for years, there have not been too many successful shows t...
