Steve Ives' Leaving Lunch, Cambridge - 11th July 2005

Steve Ives, "serial entrepreneur" and founder of 3G Lab, which morphed into Trigenix and was finally assimilated into the Qualcomm empire, finally leaves: not exactly a surprise, but it's still the end of an era. Nosher started with 3G Lab almost at the beginning when it was a start-up in a shed with 6 employees, being one of the early interviewees at the offices in Wennington, in the depths of the Cambridgeshire countryside on the far-side of Huntingdon. Later on, as the company grew, Nosher and the engineers moved to offices in Cambourne, and finally the whole company moved to Cambridge Business Park, where it remains. And so, the company duly gathers on the Science Park in what used to be known as the Q-Ton Centre (current name uncertain) for a spot of lunch and drinks in the finally-arrived balmy weather that should be a summer's day. Steve, meanwhile, is to take a few months off before doing "the next thing", whatever that may be...
