Stefan Radeta, 24, Co-Founder & CTO, TLink Golf
You are forgiven if software development is not first thing that comes to mind when you think about golf. But that is not the case for Stefan, who co-founded his startup, TLink Golf, straight out of his third year at Mount Royal University. With the goal of disrupting the entire golf industry, the TLink is the world’s Lightest GPS Golf Watch that combines both golf and fitness. In its first year alone, the company did over $1 million in sales and has positioned itself to be a leader in golf technology in the next few years. Stefan was also named Alberta’s Top Young Innovator for 2016.
