EShip Spotlight: Trace VFX

Trace VFX was founded in 2010 by Baruch MBA graduates Jon Mason, Varun Parange and Baruch alumni Matthew Herman.  The visual effects company was launched upon winning first place at the 2010 Baruch College Invitational Entrepreneurship Competition, which earned them $20,000 in seed money.  With offices in New York City and Mumbai, Trace VFX provides visual effects services for a variety of productions including commercials (Super Bowl, Olympics), television (“Game of Thrones”) and movies produced in Hollywood and Bollywood.  Mason credits the guidance of Baruch’s Entrepreneurship program, professors, and the Field Center in providing a solid foundation for his business to grow.

In the inaugural episode of “EShip Spotlight,” Mason discusses his company, and how the Entrepreneurship program and professors at Baruch have benefitted him.
