WANdisco Sponsors Leading Entrepreneur Festival ‘MADE’

We’re really excited to announce that not only will WANdisco’s CEO and co-founder, David Richards be speaking at this year’s MADE Festival in Sheffield UK, but we’ll also be sponsoring the festival.

MADE is described as “the Davos for entrepreneurs,” and its unique combination of networking opportunities, panel discussions, exhibitions, fringe events and quick-fire speaker slots is expected to attract 3,000 guests. The festival will feature 35 high-profile speakers, including David Richards and other leading business figures, such as Peter Jones, Doug Richard, Wayne Hemingway and Lord Bilimoria.

Speaking about the festival, Dragons Den star and MADE speaker Peter Jones said: “If you’re not at MADE, you’re never going to be MADE. You need to be there.”

“WANdisco is a fantastic company and a true Sheffield success story,” said Michael Hayman, chairman of MADE. “With global operations in Silicon Valley and a recent AIM flotation under its belt, this is a business that is a British world-beater. We are delighted that WANdisco is lending its support to this year’s MADE: The Entrepreneur Festival.”

We’re also really excited to see our ad in the official MADE programme, and in the local Sheffield newspaper, the Yorkshire Post. The backdrop for the ad is a local landmark: the Winter Gardens, which is actually just around the corner from the WANdisco Sheffield office!

Tickets for MADE are on sale now, or visit the MADE website for more information on the festival.
