Ross Kemp talks about his experience at Loughborough University and how his time here helped him to establish his own company.
Industrial Design and Technology
Loughborough is a hub of creative and technical energy and it’s brimming with opportunities. The support from the Design School and University has been incredible, and I wouldn’t have had a direction without the fantastic support of the University’s Enterprise team.
Ross is one of our enterprising winners, graduating from Loughborough with a degree in Industrial Design and Technology. Asap, his electric power assisted water craft for beach lifeguards, was supported by the University’s graduate enterprise initiative, The Studio. Since then, Asap has won numerous awards. In December 2013 Sir Richard Branson paid for Ross and the Asap prototype to fly to Australia for testing and the official launch.
