‘Underdog’ takes title


Seniors win Entrepreneurship Competition

Alex Barker ’14 and Jake Shimmel ’14 show off their $10,000 prize for winning the inaugural Trinity Entrepreneurship Competition on Friday, April 25, 2014. Their venture, Underdog, is a fantasy football mobile application based on teams rather than the performances of individual athletes, and the prize money will fund further development of their project. The College’s Career Development Center introduced the competition in October, and four finalist teams made presentations at the April event. “We are incredibly proud of all of our student entrepreneurs,” said Career Development Center Director J. Violet Gannon. “The entrepreneurial spirit is woven into the very fabric of the Trinity experience, and our teams’ creativity, innovative thinking, and outstanding business plans are a testament to the power of the liberal arts.”
