Palitronica Co-founder Awarded Prestigious Thiel Fellowship

Palitronica is proud to announce that one of our co-founders, Griffin Barnicutt, has been awarded the prestigious Thiel Fellowship.

Founded by billionaire technology entrepreneur and investor Peter Thiel, the Thiel Fellowship is a two-year program for young people who want to build new things. Thiel Fellows skip or drop out of college to receive a grant and support from the Thiel Foundation’s network of founders, investors, and scientists.

“Peter Thiel is a force to be reckoned with in the national security industry, and few individuals match his contribution, investment, influence in the space (Palantir Technologies, Anduril Industries, and SpaceX to name a few). I couldn’t be more grateful to have the Thiel Foundation on our side as Palitronica moves forward with safeguarding our most critical supply chains and infrastructure from foreign adversaries.”

Palitronica is honored to have the Thiel Foundation support our mission of safeguarding supply chains, and we look forward to gaining access to their network and support.
