Innovative product ignites interest
Tue, 15 May 2012
A BEES graduate of Environmental Science and the MSc in Marine Biology is developing an innovative seaweed supplement for horses as part of the UCC IGNITE programme.
The IGNITE Graduate Business Innovation Programme provides funding and free incubation space, mentoring and support to graduates of any higher education institution who are interested in starting up a new business over a nine month period. The programme is currently recruiting for next year’s intake starting in October. The closing date is 1st June 2012.
Sarah Jane O’Sullivan has developed a natural, Irish horse feed supplement, ‘Seahorse Atlantic’ derived from 100% organically grown seaweed.
Sarah’s background in Marine biology and her love of horses gave her the idea for this unusual product. Seahorse Atlantic is involved in an EU Research project and Sarah is liaising with potential funders.
Sarah holds a primary degree in Environmental Science (Zoology) and a Masters Degree in Marine biology.
