Forbes magazine’s 30 Under 30 lists, released in December, featured a handful of young alumni who are helping to shape their chosen fields:
Chris Chaney ’07, a sports and entertainment marketing pro who launched the Princeton Sports Symposium (now Ivy Sports Symposium), appeared on the entertainment list.
Caroline McCarthy ’06, included among the young leaders in media, has gone from social media blogger at CNET to product marketing manager at Google.
Christopher Rogan ’06, a Caltech graduate student, was spotlighted in the science section for his research in fundamental physics at the Large Hadron Collider.
Phillip Solomond ’06, an associate at Blackstone Group, made the finance list, in part because of his work launching the company’s distressed debt fund.
Josh Tauberer ’04, the chief technology officer of Popvox and government “data crusader” featured in PAW’s July 16, 2008, issue, was listed with law and policy leaders.
Other Forbes honorees with Princeton ties included MIT professor Jeremy England, a former fellow at Princeton’s Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, and three alumni who left the University without degrees: former graduate student Danielle Fong, co-founder of LightSail Energy; Seth Priebatsch ’11, whose company, SCVNGR, earned top prize in an undergraduate business-plan competition; and Eden Full ’13, an energy entrepreneur who received a $100,000 Thiel Fellowship last May.
