My name is Teddy Worcester. I’m fascinated by scrappy startups and innovators with lofty visions. I grew up in central Maine and studied Economics at Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts, a small private liberal arts college with an enrollment just over 1,500. I completed my third year of school at the London School of Economics & Political Science in the General Course program with a focus on Economic History. In the past, I worked on the marketing team at SaveUp, a freshly launched personal finance startup out of San Francisco that rewards people for saving and paying down their debts. True Ventures, one of SaveUp’s investors connected me to SaveUp, through the True Entrepreneur Corps (TEC), a 2-month long startup and venture capital bootcamp. I relocated to San Francisco in June, where I’m working remotely for an e-commerce company.
- i lived in a tent in the arctic of Alaska for a total 7 months (2 separate trips)
- i’m obsessed with frequent flyer miles and starwood points. there are so many awesome hacks to earn miles and points. it’s a fun game to play.
- i’m slowly but surely learning to code. i follow the philosophy that everyone should learn to code – biz dev and designers included.
- i come from a family of educators. education startups naturally interest me and i have tried and failed at building a few projects of my own. i salvaged the vestiges of these projects and i’m working on building a community of educators and edtech entrepreneurs. see: @campusfiles
- i rode the startupbus from boston to austin for sxsw. we built a tool for k-12 teachers to generate better exams and homework assignments. we were featured in boston innovation.
