Maggie Bachenberg ’21 will be a featured speaker. Her venture, Pointz, is a mobile app that determines and presents the safest routes for bicyclists based on a variety of factors including the type of bicycle being ridden (different types of bikes call for different types of roads), preferences for elevation, and purpose of ride (ex. recreational, commuting). Pointz accomplishes this by using road data and crowdsourced route information. Our app can be thought of as “Waze for bikes.”
