Help award-winning graduate to launch Geco Hub

Product Design Engineering graduate Simon Lyons has just started a Kickstarter campaign to launch a unique storage system to end the frustration of losing things.

Geco Hub grabs hold of things such as mobile phones, keys and paperwork, whilst small things like jewellery, make up or loose change sit securely in its modular cells. It is one of a number of award-winning product innovations Simon has been developing in the Studio, Loughborough’s graduate commercialisation hub. To date, he has funded his entire business venture with prize money and the Kickstarter funding could help make Geco Hub a household product. Supporters can pledge as little as £1 to help source the funds needed to go into mass manufacture – and receive their own Geco Hub for as little as £20.
