MB is so silicon


Last week, Moving Brands featured in Campaign Live’s ‘Who’s who on the Silicon Roundabout?’ article, a roundup of some of the country’s ‘buzziest media and technology’ businesses.

The area that lies between Old st and Shoreditch in East London was dubbed ‘Silicon Roundabout’ by Matt Biddulph on Twitter back in 2008. Since then, the roundabout has been much-discussed, with The Financial Times, The Economist and the Telegraph all questioning whether the roundabout is a viable UK answer to the Silicon Valley.

We’ll be asking MB founder’s Ben and James how the two “Silicons” compare, when they swap studios this week. Ben is joining us at MB HQ in Silicon Roundabout, while James is entrenched in Silicon Valley at MB San Fran.
