About Be Social Cambridge & The Founder

Hi there, I'm Samuel Douglas. The Creator & Marketeer of Be Social Cambridge.

BSC was initially set up to help independent promoters and businesses showcase their events on our website, encouraging local residents, students and tourists to attend. However, with the Covid pandemic resulting in numerous lockdowns, I changed the format to help support independent businesses, shops, freelancers and traders by promoting them via an online directory, social media & email campaigns as well as competitions. The web directory launched on April 13th 2020 and hasn't stopped growing since.

With a successful and global reach of our first Be Social Cambridge Awards in April 2021, we nominated 40 businesses who have engaged with us since the start and awarded the winners with unique prizes offered by local creative business services.


The aim is simple - We are here to help support and promote everything that is independent, from the small home start-up businesses to the more established independent shops. In return, we hope create an independent community of businesses, ensuring all of their voices are heard throughout the city.
