“I hope to expand to people who may be underserved for entrepreneurship and create a pipeline to engage with students within Northeastern’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.”

While earning her doctorate at Northeastern, Camille Martin paired up with Leila Deravi, assistant professor of chemistry and chemical biology, to pioneer a new, safer skincare line: Seaspire Skincare.


Michelle DeBlois

CEO of ReMo

“Roux has really helped us on a number of levels. We have this awesome space to work in. We have great mentors. And I think Roux really pushed us to go to market.”

Michelle DeBlois left her 20-year teaching career to leverage resources at Northeastern’s Roux Institute, in Portland, Maine, to fast-track ReMo, a web-based application encouraging students to become lifelong, engaged readers.
