Today saw the official start of Cleveratom Limited, with the first meeting of the directors, Alex Blanc, Matt Eaves and myself.
Whilst we had a day long meeting to start to iron out the issues we face as a team, I can’t really start detailing what we talked about – so it seems a bit odd to blog the event… except of course it really needs marking as an event that took place!
What I can say is that we held it in a potential business start up unit which rivals many that we have seen and beats them hands down for cost. It may not be a permanent home, but it could be a good place to start from. We need to tread carefully and not spend lots of money that we just don’t have yet, although we have agreed that to meet and work face to face will be better than working from home and holding meetings in cyberspaces or in various coffee houses across Essex/Herts. That seems an odd kind of revelation from someone who has been a remote worker for five years now (although I travelled in to the office for the last two years every day)… surely we ought to be able to work remotely?
I also suspect there would be insurance implications if we worked from home – but I’d need to check that for accuracy…
So, the (ad)venture starts!
