After two years in Philly, James Fayal is heading back to Baltimore, near where he went to college, and taking his company with him.
Fayal came to Philadelphia as part of a Venture for America fellowship. He spent a year as the controller for makerspace NextFab before leaving to work on his caffeinated tea business, Zest Tea, full time. He was previously sharing space with Old City’s Biomeme.
He returned to Baltimore because of his personal and professional networks, he told our sister site Technical.ly Baltimore, and also because of the proximity to consumer giants like Under Armour. (He also told us, last year, that he was mulling a move back to Baltimore.)
