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.”
