UCeed Social Impact Fund
The UCeed program is made possible by the generosity of United Way of Calgary and Area?and the University of Calgary.
The UCeed Social Impact Fund accelerates socially-purposed organizations using enterprising models to reach mission-critical milestones. These may include their next round of financing or attraction of management and resources to build value in the companies, and community.
As an early-stage investment fund, UCeed uses outcome-based investment with funding to accomplish defined milestones.
We can answer that — a podcast series
The podcast where we sit down with UCalgary professors, researchers and experts to get the answers to five questions submitted by you.
We talk with Dr. Abdullah Saleh, a paediatric surgeon and director of the University of Alberta's Office of Global Surgery, about how medical practitioners traveling to lower-income countries can end up doing more harm than good, even though they're trying to help.?
We talk with Dr. Darla?Zelenitsky, a paleontologist and dinosaur researcher, about how the fossil trade is a growing problem for researchers and museums around the world, and how it's only getting worse as?record-setting?sales drive prices up.?
