August 2, 2011 – U of T students launch mobile apps in the Next 36 program
August 2, 2011
Every summer, entrepreneurial program The Next 36 takes 36 of Canada's student leaders and puts them through a series of tasks that will help launch their careers. The Next 36 was co-founded by University of Toronto professors Ajay Agrawal and Reza Satchu, with Claudia Hepburn and Tim Hodgson. A handful of students from across U of T have been involved this summer.
This year, students were put onto teams and created mobile apps. Here's what Arts & Science students have created:
- Tradyo gathers information on "cool stuff" around you for buying and bartering and includes co-founder Eran Henig of computer science and economics.
- befitting allows users to see how a piece of clothing would look on them and includes co-founder Ke Li of finance and computer science.
- Whadyathink gives retailers and hospitality companies feedback from guests in real time and includes co-founder David Berkal of peace and conflict studies.
- Winston aims to change the way you call for cabs and includes co-founder Aidan Nulman of psychology and cinema studies.
