Research Shop Coordinator wins 2017 Rhyze Award

Samantha Blostein, Research Shop Coordinator and founder of local consulting firm Research for Change, is one of the 2017 recipients of the Rhyze Award!

Led by Innovation Guelph, the Rhyze Project seeks to cultivate the entrepreneurial spirit of women in Guelph and Wellington County. Only about 20% of businesses in the region are owned by women; and the Rhyze Project aims to raise this number to 30% by 2025. The Rhyze Award is an annual award that supports women entrepreneurs by offering funding and mentorship.

Samantha was recognized for her work launching Research for Change, a consultancy seeking to transform insights into action in order to drive social and economic prosperity in our communities. She works with local, provincial and national organizations to conduct research and program evaluations and to help apply findings to create meaningful change.

Contratulations Sam!
