The University of Calgary’s UCeed program has received a $2.5M donation from the United Way of Calgary and Area. The donation, which will be given over five years, will support organizations that are focused on solving complex social challenges. “Social innovation offers tremendous potential to improve quality of life with collaborations that renew existing processes and address social needs through new products, services, policies and programs,” said UCalgary President Ed McCauley. “The UCeed Social Impact Fund will spark more innovation and help commercialize new technologies by providing much-needed funding to startup companies promoting social impact.” UCalgary (AB)
