A Young Entrepreneur Revolutionises Diabetes Testing

We love seeing young entrepreneurs in action. Will Grame started his business Diabetes Domination after inventing a test strip removal and disposal unit, and has revolutionised the blood test process for those with Diabetes.


The disposal unit has greatly improved hygiene around Diabetes blood testing, and Will’s business will donate $2 from every sale to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
Will’s entrepreneurialism inspires us, showing how a school student with an idea can make a big impact!
