Canyon Challenge Update

Canyon ChallengeBrad Scruggs, Ahmad Saleem and Brian Scruggs are 2014 biology graduates of GCU who put medical school on hold six months ago to start their own business. They created a software application called Joblyt, that matches people who need tasks done sooner rather than later with people who have the know-how, desire and time — now — to do them. The entrepreneurs needed funding and they got that when they were chosen as the grand prize winner of the 2015 GCU Canyon Challenge and were awarded $11,000. Read more here.
