Last month at Launch22 we premiered our debut podcast ‘Talk22’. This is now a weekly feature here at Launch and it got us thinking, how can a podcast help a business?

The layout of the hub inspires everyone who comes in. I love the open plan working area, huge windows and chill out area.” — Ray Carr, Terrapin Global Shipping Recruitment
Our space, with its large central desk structure and breakout areas, plays a huge role in creating a collaborative environment. Our members particularly enjoy the ability to take a break and play ping-pong or table football which helps develop the sense of community...
We at Launch22 have been doing some talking about Big Data and to what extent it can really help entrepreneurs. Looking at customer data can be very helpful when it comes to optimising what you’re already doing, but taken in isolation, it has little capacity to generate the radical insights that can form the basis of a truly new idea.
When I graduated from university with a degree in Biomedical Science, I didn’t have a plan for what to do next like most other graduates. I knew I didn’t want to work in a lab or continue with masters or PhDs like my classmates, so I needed to find experience elsewhere. Since I’ve always had an interest in tech and I wanted to try something completely new, I looked for roles in start-ups. When I saw the vacancy for a Marketing Intern at Launch22, I applied right away!
