Drive Cambridge 

Enjoy pitch free networking where the emphasis is firmly on being yourself and making friends!

Andy Boothman is the group leader for DRIVE Cambridge. He invites local successful business owners to share their experience of growing a business in an informative environment where frank discussions about the highs and lows of business life are common and laughter is a big part of most meetings!

The Future Business Centre provides the perfect setting for a modern take on networking with no sales pitches and lots of opportunities for real conversations. Please use the attendance list to find out who you would like to meet and connect with other attendees before the meeting so that nobody ever has to walk into a room full of strangers.

A typical agenda: Start with coffee and informal networking, listen to the speaker, discuss how to apply what you’ve learned to your own business. End with more networking and continue the discussion in the Drive Facebook Group.
