The facility was launched this week by Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, Inc

Mr Cook described his invitation to the opening of the multi-million pound hub as a "privilege".

Offering the students in attendance advice on how to best use the facility, Mr Cook said: ‘Your focus group is yourself - you should make products that you want to use. You can bet if you love it, many other people out there will love it too.’

On team building, he added: 'Find people that are different than you, where the common thread is that they want to change the world.’

 The venue aims to build a community of innovation across the University, inspiring and supporting Oxford’s 23,000 students to develop their entrepreneurial skills or create and scale commercial ventures.
