Managing Director, Karen Nicholas, runs the successful start-up around her family life. Raptor 3D Design turns concepts into reality by creating stunning 3D visuals and animations.
3D visualisations show what future projects will look like. It is an extremely powerful and useful tool that can be used for buildings and product designs.
One year on and Karen and the Raptor team have gone one step further by linking their visualisations to virtual reality, allowing their clients to walk through their proposed development, enabling the project manager to make any final adjustments.
Chris Sedgeman, Managing Director of Chris Sedgeman Scaffolding Ltd said “Working with Raptor is always a pleasure. They have a great understanding of our requirements and have produced outstanding 3D Visualisations for a number of projects.”
Based in St Just, an area of outstanding natural beauty is no barrier for this small business. With much of the business completed remotely, network links enable Raptor to conduct site visits to fully understand a project if necessary.
Karen identified a need for support with starting up her business. She saw an advert for the Spark programme and came to an information session to find out more.
“I saw the Spark programme as being a great opportunity to validate the business idea, update my business skills/knowledge, meet and network with like-minded people and receive the huge benefits including the mentorship, business space and grant.”
Karen found that now was the right time to start the business she had been thinking about for years, due to the right people offering the right services.
