Fun Run, an exercise mobile app, won Villanova University’s Student Entrepreneurship Competition (VSEC), held late last month.
The students behind the idea — a social app that motivates users to run by awarding “flags” for certain milestones — won $5,000. At the time of the competition, they were still working on a prototype.
