Celebrating student innovators

Lehigh computer engineering student Alexander Galakatos ’12 and economics student Allyson Coff ’12 were among the outstanding student entrepreneurs honored at Lehigh’s seventh-annual INNOVATE! CELEBRATE! awards dinner, hosted by the Baker Institute for Entrepreneurship, Creativity and Innovation. Winning ventures ranged from cross-cultural art projects and fashion exchanges to energy snacks and water purification systems. This year a new award -- the so-called ‘i Prize’ -- went to Streamback, a venture founded by Galakatos and Coff. Sponsored by Todd Welch ’10P, the new award recognizes the “coolest idea on the verge of implementation.”
