Issue: 

Third-year Commerce students Helena Zhang and Naomi Ng shared second-place winnings of $10,000 for Aelius Co. (www.aeliusco.com), a hand-crafted jewelry venture, by participating in the Queen’s Summer Innovation Initiative. Angelina Fomina, BCom’13, and her teammates also collected $10,000 for Gotivity (Gotivityapp.com), an online service that matches like-minded people to share their favourite activities. This initiative, a partnership of QSB and the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, supports innovation activities of students, alumni, entrepreneurs and Canadian companies.
