Prepare for your office Christmas party to feel inadequate as Team Seenit really nailed it. The 12hr extravaganza included a Build-a-Bear, a limo, fairy lights, an inflatable Santa Suit, and basically everything but a partridge in a pear tree. It went a little something like this…..

Fortunately, Home Alone is pack full of yummy references like pizza, doughnuts, Pepsi (which got the Jack Daniels Treatment), popcorn and more! It was a well organized, inventive idea and we’re so thankful for all of Ed and Nick’s work!

….well a guide to be specific!
It’s a well know fact, even in the wake of Brexit, that London is one the best places to start a company. It has the tools, it has the investment, and most importantly it has the ability to attract innovators and entrepreneurs alike.
With 100s of companies beginning their life in London every year the startup world is hard to navigate. Luckily, our pals at Start-up Everywhere are here to help.
They provide comprehensive guides ‘Filled with case-studies, expert advice, insights, interviews and local tips’ to help out those ‘new to a city, new to the startup scene, or seasoned business people starting all over again’.
Following their guides for Stockholm, Berlin, Oslo, Copenhagen, Trondheim, Lisbon, Vienna, Aarhus, the London edition is finally ready for print, and Seenit are in it!
We are honored to feature since the selection process is ‘thorough, first sorting through the hundreds of nominations before a local advisory board helps us curate the final list with the startups to be featured.’, and it’s even more of an honored to share the guide with Giraffe360, The Memo, Linden Staub, Wefarm, Courier, Wiredscore, Yoyo Wallet, PROPERCORN, and Jukedeck.
The book has just been launched, just in time for Christmas 😉, and we can’t wait to see Seenit in print!

Thank you to everyone who has supported Seenit on our journey thus far, we wouldn’t be where we are without you! The competition was fierce and the experience tremendous. Suffice it to say, participating in this year’s TechCrunch Disrupt was truly rewarding (wink wink).

Back at the office awaiting the results…

There were so many interesting talks, panels, and ideas going around – we wish we could have heard them all. If you missed any, head to TechCrunch to watch and/or read about them!
What an exciting, exhausting, terrifying, incredible ride it’s been.
Engagement, engagement, engagement!
That’s what Ed and Nick R, our business development team, were talking about at The Engaging Employees Conference on Wednesday.
They were there to explain how we have been able to create and improve communities through the power of video.
Ed joined Angharad from TSB, Hayley James from First Group plc, and Jim from Life Works on the ‘New Tools and Channels’ panel to discuss just that. We’re super proud of Ed, even though it looked like he was on death row (see below). He truly expressed how Seenit has allowed employees to be creative and has given companies new ways to share knowledge.
The event was great and we were glad to see some familiar and not so familiar faces. Can’t wait to attend next year’s conference and shout about the new ways Seenit has stimulated employee engagement.
Last Thursday lunchtime, we ventured to Shoreditch House to check out a quick talk on “THE POWER OF COMMUNITY AND COLLABORATION FOR BRANDS” with the amazing creators of Age of Reason, 69b Boutique, GRLPWR and Mother Pukka.
There were many great points made that we felt really echoed Seenit’s values but from an alternative industry standpoint. Here are our 5 key takeaways for creating and building a community!
- ‘Collaboration is the glue for community.’ – enable your community to feel more connected through events, posts and engagement.
- Always strive for transparency in business – honesty and openness are the basis of a community and business. Share and grow together to be stronger.
- Create a space where people want to hangout – physical or virtual! People are more likely to stay and chat if they feel comfortable!
- Persistence is key! Communities don’t appear over night, and your outreach won’t work on the first email. Passion drives the growth of your community so keep at it!
- If you’re working with influencers to grow your community, give them creative freedom. Influencers are only effective if they connect with your gang!
We loved hearing about community from another point of view and it’s fantastic to hear amazing women making noise to support good company vibes.
Loves it 😘
