As part of the celebration of the 24th edition of the Pierre-Péladeau Scholarships, two Lebanese alumni of the University of Saint Joseph (USJ), Lynn Doughane and Albert Obeid, received the 3rd prize of the 2022 Pierre-Péladeau Scholarship 2022.
Along with Nanette Sene, they were rewarded for their entrepreneurial activities that aim to develop a technology to effectively relieve menstrual pain that affects the lifestyle of active women.
By combining their knowledge in electrical and mechanical engineering, the three Polytechnique graduates have developed an alternative solution to medicines.
This solution consists of a portable device that treats menstrual pain instantly.
Consequently, Lynn Doughane, Albert Obeid, and Nanette Sene, who founded “Juno” during their studies at Polytechnique, are receiving a $30,000 entrepreneurial support grant from Quebecor and AsterX.
Awarded annually to university students in Quebec, Canada, the Pierre-Péladeau Scholarships aims to help student entrepreneurs start their businesses, carry out their business plans, and develop their products and markets.
Since 1999, the organization has awarded a total of $2.7 million in scholarships to students.
