Now Innovating: Celebrating UCeed and social impact

A conversation with Dr. Lorian Taylor, PhD, of LyfeMD and Pete Santosham, executive director, UCeed Funds, Innovate Calgary


In the Season 5 premiere episode of Now Innovating, we are celebrating UCeed, a series of early-stage investment funds backed by philanthropic support from the University of Calgary and managed by Innovate Calgary.

We speak with Dr. Lorian Taylor, PhD, of LyfeMD, an evidence-based application to support diet and lifestyle solutions developed by health professionals. This social enterprise out of the University of Calgary has received investment from UCeed’s social impact fund.

We will also hear from Pete Santosham to learn more about UCeed and the impacts it has had in just three short years.

Now Innovating shares the stories of UCalgary researchers who have moved their discoveries forward and their innovation journeys to implementation and creating impact. Episodes are released monthly, and also available as a podcast on platforms such as Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and more. View the series.
