UofT researcher named Entrepreneur of the Year

A 24-year-old University of Toronto researcher has been named Canada's top "Future Entrepreneurial Leader" (FuEL) by Profit magazine. Alexander Levy was awarded the top honour for MyVoice, an iPhone app that helps those who have communication problems due to stroke, autism or ALS.
"MyVoice allows users to find customizable phrases and words for every day situations. It also uses locational devices to detect where you are and finds relevant words—such as pulling up how you take your coffee if you are in a café."
"More than 9,000 people in 30 countries have downloaded a version of MyVoice, which has changed Levy's world."
"'The scale at which my voice would become used and its importance to so many people is something that all of us have been blown away by,' he said."
"Ian Portsmith, editor of Profit magazine, told 680News that Levy is not only changing lives but doing his part to help the Canadian economy."
