From Business Today:
Students from Holy Angels Academy nabbed second prize in the Students for Advancement of Global Entrepreneurship World Cup competition held in Buffalo. Teams from around the world competed in two categories: socially responsible businesses (which make money but not at all costs) and social enterprise businesses (which try to change the world with an idea sustained through earned income). Holy Angels Academy's entry was Small World Publishing, which creates and publishes bilingual books about social issues. Nigerian teams took first place in both categories, but Holy Angels beat out five other finalists from as far away as South Africa and Ukraine.
Profits at Computer Task Group were up dramatically in the second quarter, rising 49 percent the company said Monday. The Buffalo-based technology services provider reported profits of $2.8 million, or 17 cents per share, up from $1.9 million, or 12 cents per share, in the same quarter last year. CTG attributed the success to a strong demand for technology outsourcing, an increase in health care work and a surge in the operating margin.
