The Melting Pot officially marks 9 years of trading on 1 October – what a 9 years it has been!
Above is a wonderful picture of all the guests at our 9th Birthday party in the order they got involved with The Melting Pot. This ranges from Claire Carpenter, founder of The Melting Pot, to our newest member Kate!
We celebrated 9 years with some Friday Fizz, a trip down memory lane with our members and a whole load of fun with some fab social innovators. We asked a few of our long term Members to talk about what The Melting Pot has meant to them. Below is Mairi Campbell-Jack talking about her experience, the rest of the speeches can be found on our YouTube channel!
Of course, we have even more excitement ahead of us. Our new look incubation programme the Good Ideas Academy is ready and raring to go after 5 years supporting and inspiring innovators as the Social Innovation Incubator Award. Keep an eye out for the latest news after applications close on Sunday 16 October.
We are also recruiting for new Directors and an Operations and Communications Manager – new folk will no doubt bring an injection of new energy. If you know anyone that fits the bill please do put us in touch!
Our main aim for the next chapter is to go deeper, go forth and multiply. Stay tuned for announcements about the Coworking Accelerator Network, potential new space in Edinburgh, partnerships to run other’s spaces and increase our footprint.
Here’s to another 9 years!
