The big ABVenture: University of Aberdeen's ABVenture Zone

Idea - An incubation space supports growing businesses - SantanderCB

The University of Aberdeen hosts ABVenture Zone, an incubation space which supports growing businesses and encourages entrepreneurs to develop new products and services. Fourth year University of Aberdeen medical students, James Mcllroy and Matthew Bracchi, have formed EuroBiotix, a social enterprise focused on helping sufferers of Clostridium difficile. EuroBiotix intends to use a blood bank model for transplants to address current cost and screening challenges doctors face in providing treatment. EuroBiotix CIC was the first occupant of the ABVenture Zone and the duo's idea has won a number of awards including the Santander Business Pitching competition.
