Episode 5: Designing a startup with Paper’s Mark Goddard
We’re on to episode five of the Sheffield Digital Podcast. This time, we’re joined by Mark Goddard from user research and design studio, Paper. We talk a lot about the decisions Mark and his co-founders made when starting the company. I think it makes for a really interesting look at the process and how there is no one way of doing things. We also cover legup.social, the bi-monthly event that Paper organises, and how that fits in with their business.
In other topics, we briefly talk about Sheffield’s first digital conference, which comes on the back of the digital confab last month. Mel talks about the Women in Tech event she recently attended at Google Digital Garage, before calling on people to help set up a regular meetup. There’s mention of Sky Betting & Gaming, which is up to a couple of things – first a CoLab programme as well as a recruitment drive to fill 30 open vacancies in Sheffield. Finally, we run through the digital-based nominees for the Sheffield Chamber Business Awards.
There’s plenty to chew on, so go find your headphones and get stuck in. If you enjoy listening to the show, please tell someone else about it. We’d love for it to reach as many people as possible.
