Swell Spaces designs commercial interiors in the San Francisco Bay Area that encourage creativity, play, and hard work. Swell Spaces founder Hannah Ruskin believes that every space should be functional, beautiful, and “leave you feeling inspired.”
After finishing school, Hannah started collaborating with startups and tech companies to create modern and functional office designs. Then, in 2011 she took the next step and started her own small company. While Swell Spaces had humble beginnings, but as the Bay Area economic and tech boom continued to take off in the late 2000’s, so did their business and client base. Needing advice on how to scale their design business to the next level, they came to BusinessAdvising.org.
Working closely with their advisor, Creative Director Carly Rose says their advisor “enabled us gain important insight into our cash flow, and to develop a sustainable bookkeeping system. Getting control of our finances meant we were able to increase our staff hours, and move into our very own office. Now we can operate more efficiently and continue grow our business!”
