“I’m a typical creative – I love designing but when it comes to financial forecasting, sales channels, buying seasons, courier contracts it’s been difficult. Having support from InCube has been great – it’s really helped me to focus and the new skills and knowledge I’m gaining will help to grow my business and make it sustainable.”

“My main awareness as a startup is to raise awareness of my brand and to establish retail outlets for my products. I’ve found the InCube workshops and one-to-one coaching extremely helpful in entering the wholesale sector.”

“It’s great to be part of a creative community. The one-to-one support is great – it helps me focus and question the way I run my business.”

“InCube has given me the opportunity to meet like-minded creative people that are all so enthusiastic about their business and helping each other. The mentoring and support I have received have been invaluable.”

“As an InCube graduate I found the whole experience fantastic.”

“InCube has helped me to recognise the progress that I’ve made, push me in the right direction and to work on the areas of my business that intimidate me. Although I’m confident in my design skills, I’m not a natural seller and InCube encouraged me to think like a business woman.”
