Radiology faculty member spearheads paper clip for charity business
Summer Decker, PhD, of the USF Health Department of Radiology, recently led a team project in USF’s Master’s of Science in Entrepreneurship in Applied Technologies program, which used social media to raise more than $2,000 in four days for a hunger-relief charity.
Decker, assistant professor and director of imaging research in the radiology department, worked with a team of fellow students in the College of Business New Venture Strategy course led by professor Sean Lux, PhD. Lux issued all the student teams in his class a challenge.
“We had one paper clip to start a business and raise as much money as we could within a week,” Decker said. “The previous record (for a team) was $600.”
