Gabelli School Innovators' Podcast

Gabelli School Innovators' Podcast

By Gabelli School Innovators Podcast
The Gabelli School Innovators Podcast is a project started by four Gabelli students from the class of 2022. We were being trained in design thinking through Stanford’s University Innovation Fellowship when we realized that there were a ton of exciting, innovative projects happening at Fordham that other students did not know anything about. On the podcast, we dive into stories of changemakers, innovators, and entrepreneurs within the Fordham community as a way to promote the innovation already happening on our campus and raise awareness about the inspiring things our peers are working on.
