last modified May 29, 2014 02:50 PM
Stew McTavish was invited by the website to give his insights into successful start-ups and how ideaSpace can help entrepreneurs on their journey.


Stew, founding director of ideaSpace, speaks in the interview of the vision that led to its creation, the role of the University of Cambridge in fostering firms, his own previous start-up ventures – and he also offers some tips for budding entrepreneurs.

Asked about how ideaSpace helps Europe’s start-ups, Stew says: “We don’t help start-ups directly. We focus on supporting founders develop in their role as leaders of the business model discovery process.

“The primary way we do this is through our membership programme where we carefully interview prospective members so we can create a high quality community of new venture founders who can help and support each other by working in close proximity to each other.”
