Upstream have announced the launch of Gigglebyte – a series of events to celebrate where comedy meets tech and business.
The joint venture between Hammersmith & Fulham Council and Imperial College, Upstream aims to support innovation, collaboration and business growth across the area.
Gigglebyte is a spin-off from the Shepherd’s Bush Comedy Festival, and provides a series of free events aimed at promoting the best of White City and Shepherd’s Bush – whilst having fun, networking and learning valuable skills.
The events are as follows:
- Tuesday 24/7/18: Fuelling Business: How to use humour as an engine of growth. Gigglebyte launches with an evening panel and drinks. We know laughter is important to well-being but might it also be harnessed to improve the bottom line.
