Trailblazer among finalists at Princeton’s Tiger Launch

Joe Bazydlo ’16 and Eddie Elizondo ’16 entered Tiger Launch with their Trailblazer project last fall. Tiger Launch is Princeton University’s national pitch contest for university students. Trailblazer is an innovative smartphone app aimed to restore a sense of adventure in the National Parks. Fascinating park information is matched with a GPS point, a Trailblazer Beacon, on the park trails. Their video entry earned them a place amongst the semifinalists. They then had an opportunity to work with a venture capitalist in New York to prepare for their pitch at Princeton. They were chosen as finalists, along with undergraduate and MBA students from universities such as Princeton, Caltech, and University of Chicago. Congratulations!
