Prior to joining Incubation at Ravensbourne, both Samantha and Albert had been working remotely around the UK until they decided to look for space that would work for them.
After a long search, they found Ravensbourne was the best fit. They felt that having a base in London would help them progress their business and be part of a thriving community at Ravensbourne.
“We were super happy. We had made some great friends during the festival and had worked with the members of the team and felt that we could give a lot more to Ravensbourne, especially now being in Incubation, ” says Samantha.
