Founded 2014

MakerClub

We have created our own technology and developed a range of technology courses that teach a mix of professional 3D design software, basic electronics and the coding language C++. We want everyone to be able to design, code and print their own products.

 

Being based in Brighton has been key to our growth. The city is close to London and full of creative businesses. A huge range of great networking events make connecting with them easy. Originally, Wired Sussex supported us and their accelerator program, FuseBox24, gave us free space and mentoring. Both Brighton and Sussex universities help young companies access graduates for reduced commercial rates, so talent is never an issue.
