Carleton University alumna Natasha D’Souza is the recipient of a $50,000 neuroscience entrepreneurial fellowship given by the Ontario Brain Institute (OBI) in partnership with Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE). D’Souza’s fellowship is one of 10 Ontario post-graduate fellowships to help entrepreneurs turn their neuro-discoveries into companies and jobs. D’Souza is a 2012 graduate of Carleton’s Technology Innovation Management (TIM) program.
“Natasha joined the TIM program with a purpose – to launch and grow her company,” said Steven Muegge, her graduate project supervisor and a professor with the Sprott School of Business. “She graduated with an engineering degree in one hand and a new technology business in the other. Her graduate project examined business models to provide technology and services for children with special needs, and her company is the commercialization of that work. My colleagues and I are proud of her success.”
D’Souza is the founder and CEO of Virtual EyeSee and is developing a system to benefit children with autism. She has more than 15 years of industry experience and advises businesses, organizations and individuals on the optimization of their business strategies.
