Our Pizza and Punters event :-)

Our Pizza and Punters event :-)

Earlier this month we announced that we’d be running our first brainstorming and feedback event in Cambridge. Working alongside David from Cambridge University’s Spacefinder (Futurelib), luckily for us David has plenty of experience running events! So… it happened! We had so much fun – so thank you! We met so many new people from such a wide variety of backgrounds. And the feedback was plentiful and extremely useful 🙂

Our users entered a completely relaxed and informal environment, where they had the freedom to stay or leave when they wanted to. To complete the informality, fresh pizza was ordered. So yummy! Everyone […] Read more

Our first mini brainstorming event!

Our first mini brainstorming event!

 

We are extremely happy to confirmed that WizPar will be co-hosting it’s first public event. We’ll be co-hosting with the people behind the super useful Spacefinder. Ever needed to find the perfect place to study? Then, these guys are for you!

At the event we’d like to show you what we’ve got so far, get your first impressions, and chat about what we should be doing to make it better. Help us, and we’ll give you free pizza. It’s that simple.

It’s always great to meet people who really do love apps and all things software. These like-minded people are so important […] Read more

Let WizPar help you make the most of your 2017…

I think we can all agree that the world has witnessed some astonishing changes in 2016, it has been a dynamic twelve months across the globe: Trump, Brexit, numerous celebrity deaths, middle Eastern conflicts, technological innovation and much, much more – 2016 has definitely not left us short of news to discuss.

Despite all the radical ongoings in the wider world, inside our humble WizPar laboratory the efforts to complete the perfect app continue to propel tirelessly onwards, brains furiously ticking over possible innovations, our mad tech scientists never leaving a glitch unattended. And how exciting 2016 has been…

Aside from the […] Read more

Tea and cake anyone?

Back in October we ran a special competition at the Fresher’s fair in Cambridge. Our lucky winner – Haskan from Gonville & Caius College – has just sent us this mouth-watering picture.

It does look yummy Haskan! Thank you for making us all feel so hungry in the office! 

Watch out for our next competition in the new year!

WizPar & Me

WizPar & Me

Fate playing it’s dutiful role? A novel business romance? A match made in heaven? Possibly slight exaggerations, but my encounter with WizPar was a welcome turn of events; I was looking for an ambitious business to grow within, WizPar were looking for a fresh recruit with marketing experience – the rest, as they say, is history (well…one week old history).

…..

I was first introduced to WizPar through a friend and, after a brief introduction to the app, I agreed to help promote their brand at a Cambridge University freshers fair alongside Tarba. We spent two days conversing with […] Read more

And the nominations are…

And the nominations are…

There was an excited buzz in the office on hearing that we had made it to the short list for this year’s Cambridge News Top Innovation Awards. An honour to be standing alongside the cleverest companies from Cambridge’s cluster. Not only our very first award ceremony but it was being held at the prestigious and very beautiful Downing College.

The day started off at the Cambridge University Fresher’s Fair… mustn’t forget to mention the 6am start to face the A14 heading into Cambridge to setup the WizPar stall in time. Meeting lots of fresh faced students and telling them about our little […] Read more

Fresh at ARU’s Fair!

Fresh at ARU’s Fair!

Last Friday saw the WizPar team attending their very first fresher’s fair in Cambridge. I started the morning downing 10 super strong coffees as the 6am start was a shock to the system, along with facing the chaotic A14, hoping the drive would get better.

Feeling rather pleased with myself, I had found the right car park level to start unloading the WizPar merchandise and the flashy exhibition stand. (Anyone who knows me, will understand this is quite an achievement considering my sense of direction…) In the car park people milled around with boxes and a man battled to balance a […] Read more
