Last month the faculty’s CCI Creative Space blog featured Hannah Mitchell, one of our former placement year students.
Hannah, BA (Hons) Fashion and Textile Design, chose to do our Self-employment Placement Year where students can set up and run their own business with the support of the faculty and the University’s nest team.
Nest is the startup incubator, exclusively for students and graduates of the University of Portsmouth. Nest help to get your idea off of the ground, or take an existing startup to the next level, they offer expert advice and support, workshops, co-working space, networking opportunities, funding opportunities, and a whole host of useful resources.
In 2015/16 Hannah, spent her placement year developing her own lingerie brand, Hayze. She graduated in 2017 and now, with the help of Nest funding, Hannah has exciting plans for Hayze, which you can read more about on the CCI Creative Space blog.
