TWO entrepreneurs who met on a university exchange have created a new company despite being separated by thousands of miles.
Michael Ings, from Botesdale, and Boyko Ivano, from Finland, both 23, followed their ambition to begin their own business.
During the early days they studied while setting up the company,Finbright, a wholesale import company, now based in Essex, selling a new low energy LED light bulb.
Michael said: “It was difficult in the early days. We used the internet and telephone to overcome the fact that I was in Essex and Boyko was still living in Finland.”
