American Genetic Services Inc. secures seed funding

A student company, American Genetic Services Inc., has just secured $50,000 in funding to research the viability of a chain of preventive genetic services clinics in the US market. AGS will be the first to access physician referrals and insurer funding for genetic counseling services. Led by Abraham Prabhakar of Churchill College, a Masters candidate at the Judge Business School, AGS looks set to become the first global player in the emerging genetic services market after competing in one of the world’s most prestigious business plan competitions, the Coventry University Entrepreneurs Business Creation Competition (CUEBiC).

The university-based student society, Coventry University Entrepreneurs, works to realize the ambitions of and provide inspiration to some of the most talented and entrepreneurial students in the world. Abraham Prabhakar, who is also president and co-founder of Allied Health Management (AHM), Canada's 6th fastest growing company, has attributed his success in securing funding to his participation in CUEBiC. ‘I am certain that this highly regarded accolade added tremendous value to my fledgling company and aided in recently securing our first equity investors. I realise the incredible calibre of student entrepreneurs involved in CUEBiC and am certain that some of tomorrow’s great business and technology leaders will be found in this year’s competition.’
