UBC Student Entrepreneurs
October 25, 2011
I am very pleased to see that the entrepreneurship@UBC Fund has announced its first investment: Aeos Biomedical.
Colin O’Neill and Nick Seto co-founded Aeos to commercialize their “Target Tape” invention. Target tape is a disposable, adhesive sticker that assists surgeons to better target their incisions. This idea is something that surgeons immediately understand and appreciate. I think this company has great potential.
Colin and Nick are terrific examples of what can happen when engineering students are partnered with commerce students. They play to their strengths, complement one another and are already on a successful track.
I am very happy for them and for entrepreneurship@UBC for helping foster some great student entrepreneurs.
