In the latest instalment in a series looking at the wide range of support being made available to County Durham companies as the country emerges from lockdown, PETER BARRON highlights the value of the Durham Future Innovation Building Programme (DFIB).
WHEN Doctor Chenna Rajagopal wanted to develop his pioneering business, he turned to Business Durham for help.
And the economic development arm of Durham County Council came up with the answer to his needs through the Durham Future Innovation Building Programme (DFIB).
Dr Rajagopal runs a business called Affotek – based at the North East Technology Park (NETPark) at Sedgefield – using technology to create medical solutions that are both more affordable and less disruptive to people’s lives.
Originally from India, Dr Rajagopal trained in the UK and worked as a Consultant Paediatrician at Catterick Military Hospital, while also providing cover at The Friarage Hospital, in Northallerton, and occasionally at Darlington Memorial Hospital.
