NVisage – The AR visualisation app

Another LDCM under the belt and despite August being a month of people being away on their jollies, we still had lots of great ideas for a brand new app…we didn’t “NVisage” this one. Don’t forget the next LDCM will be the first Friday in September! The Classic LDCM Approach Our Coffee Mornings are sponsored […]

Travely – a new travel wellbeing app

After last month’s version of LDCM being based around Star Wars Day, this month it was back to our usual format. If you’re still yet to visit one of our famous Coffee Morning’s, we’ll give you a little rundown so you’re more aware of how it works and our crowd-sourcing app process, ready for next time! […]

‘The Force’ takes over LDCM

An LDCM with a twist this week! Hosting our monthly coffee morning this time on May 4th, of course meant we had to incorporate a Star Wars theme. In our usual format of LDCM, along-side sweet treats from our friends at 200 Degrees, crowd-sourcing brings fresh and diverse ideas for a new app, but we […]

Plan&Go – the social planning app

After we were unfortunately left with no choice but to cancel March’s Coffee Morning due to weather conditions of the extreme kind (yes, that snow!) we were raring to get back to our monthly routine with another LDCM last Friday. If you haven’t been, it is one of our longest standing and most popular digital […]

Safe Spaces and fresh pastries – a special wellness-themed LDCM

Last week was LightStart’s regular Leeds Digital Coffee Morning AND Leeds Wellbeing Week, so we thought it was only right that we combine the two to create a special wellness-themed edition! With the help of our guests, we decided to take a shot at creating a digital platform that enriches inner (or outer) health in […]

What’s the moral of your story?

On Wednesday 11th October, as part of Leeds Business Week, we hosted the first of what we’d like to become a regular event. It was called Short Stories, and it was a very simple idea – we asked people to come along and tell a 10 minute story directly to our audience, sat in a […]

Short Stories, sunsets and snacks

LightStart presents… Last Wednesday we grabbed a group of inspirational people from all types of backgrounds and plonked them into the largest armchair imaginable (see pictures to get an idea) at our Short Stories event. To entertain and inspire guests our speakers relayed their tales of success, woe, adaptation, failure and the fun they had […]

Ask A Grown Up – an adulting app

This morning we dropped an old favourite into a new setting! The 16th instalment of the Leeds Digital Coffee Morning (aka LDCM) marked the very first event to christen LightStart’s new home, Platform, a swanky just-refurbished tower located next to Leeds rail station. Other than the brand spanking new venue, everything about the event was […]

A show and tell…LightStart style

Digital Show’n’Tell – 2nd Edition Last Thursday LightStart took its guests back to basics with a good old fashioned show ‘n’ tell – but improved, because digital! It was only our second instalment of the DSNT, but despite its youth it definitely hasn’t failed to attract a wealth of Leeds-based talent with some exciting gadgets […]

The Work/Life Talk Show – books and downtime

At the end of July we hosted the second instalment of The Work/Life Talk Show, back after three months due to popular demand! This time it was held at our office on the top floor event space complete with roof terrace. Unfortunately, even though it was the end of July, we didn’t get to enjoy […]
