It’s nearly two weeks until the Enabled by Design-athon and Team EbD has been working tirelessly to get everything organised for what looks set to be a jam-packed two days of presentations, participation and prototypes at Ravensbourne, London. To say that we’re a little bit excited, would be the understatement of the century! : )
The Enabled by Design-athon really wouldn’t be possible without our “fantastic five” event partners, who we’d like to thank for all of their help and support, as well as believing in Enabled by Design of course! Each and every one of them has played an important role in making this event happen (from the venue hire and catering to materials and tools), so without further ado let us introduce you to:
