Essex-Based Entrepreneurs Graduate From The EEHub



A diverse group of Essex-based startup entrepreneurs graduated yesterday at the Eastern Enterprise Hub in Colchester as part of three of its highly practical learning programmes.

Individuals from the EEHub’s Essex Entrepreneurs Programme, the Games Hub and the Colchester Entrepreneurs Programme graduated as part of an informal celebration, which included speeches, a bustling marketplace and refreshments from Wunderbar; a mobile cocktail bar run by Sarah Nunn and Anke Sittig, who were also graduating.

The entrepreneurs received certificates, which were presented by Essex County Council’s Sarah Bell and Helen Code – who is also an EEHub board member – as well as Jolyon Berry from Birkett’s; a Games Hub partner.



Frazer Merrick from Teaboy Games – a studio that took part in the Games Hub – graduated yesterday too.

He said:

“The rousing speech from EEHub CEO Digby Chacksfield was my personal highlight of the graduation. His energy and passion towards entrepreneurs in East Anglia is truly inspiring.

“The EEHub has been crucial to the success of Teaboy Games. Our game Fallen launches on Thursday 27 August and potential investors are already approaching us about our next idea. None of this would have been possible without the support of the EEHub.”

Digby said: 

It was wonderful to see that an enthusiastic bunch of Essex-based entrepreneurs graduated yesterday, which has again proven to be a rewarding partnership between the EEHub and Essex County Council.

“Having the confidence to pitch and share their business ideas during the marketplace to our partners such as Birketts and Shark Infested Custard, and to our board members and staff is key to setting up a company and having the courage and determination to make it a success.”
