This weekend, two Fordham student entrepreneurs and Compass Fellows won $2,500 Kenneth Cole grants for their socially conscious ventures.
Corinne Logan’s Pumpstash compression shorts are designed to hold insulin pumps for diabetics.
Nick Makarov and Joe Halpin created SamePage, an application to help students synthesize current events using timelines, infographics and glossaries.
Corrine and Nick and Joe’s team were two of six finalists along with Fordham’s Phillip Sweeney, whose proposed Recessive Jeans brand would support research and awareness for genetic disorders.
The Compass Fellowship is an international social entrepreneurship program on nearly 20 college campuses. Fashion designer and social activist Kenneth Cole partners with Compass Partners with this program to encourage entrepreneurship and ventures that embody conscious consumption.
