Frank Kimenai, one of the founding fathers of Incubate and our colleague who made sure our financial and productional worries were taken care of, will leave Incubate on June 1st.
We’ve had wonderful times with Frank (as you can see on these pictures), and wish him all the best.

In his own words:
I would like to inform you that as of june 1st 2012, I will be parting ways with Incubate. After a long period of thinking and balancing out my thoughts and ideas, I have made my decision. It wasn’t an easy one, especially since it concerns one of the things that I hold dearest. It feels like letting go of a child that I have nourished for seven years, that has cost me blood, sweat and tears, but above all gained me a lot of positive energy and ideas. However, I felt the time was here to make this decision, because I strongly felt the need to explore new paths, to face new challenges. This notion of looking for new experiences grew stronger and stronger throughout the last few months, and therefor I have decided to go for it. It is with pain in my heart that I am leaving Incubate. I am sincerely proud of what we have achieved over the last seven years, and I look back with a great sense of satisfaction and gratitude. It is a comforting thought that I will be leaving Incubate in the capable hands of the best team possible for this job. Incubate is built on a solid base, upon which the festival can grow to the next level in the next few years. I’m proud to be able to say that I have helped create that base, and that I have been part of shaping all these wonderful ideas.
Concerning my work duties, you can check the contact page on incubate.org to see who is now the guy or girl to talk to.
I would like to thank you for everything you meant for me and Incubate, both professionally and personally, the last few years, and I hope to see you in september on that festival in Tilburg!
All the best,
