Student wins social innovation funding for campus initiative

Wednesday, December 3, 2014

Third-year therapeutic recreation student Laura Barkin was one of four St. Paul's GreenHouse students to receive funding from a new $5,000 Social Innovation Fund for startups.

Barkin's Moving Libraries initiative aims to make studying an active experience by bringing FitDesks to the University.

The funding was announced at St. Paul's Social Innovaton Showcase on December 3, 2014. St. Paul's GreenHouse is the first and only live-in campus-linked accelerator in Canada focused on social innovation and entrepreneurship.
