Tyler is a third year Pharmacy student at Northeastern.
While he started as strictly a health science student, he was somehow roped into the "Entrepreneurship" business by some fantastic people. Always an opportunist, he hopes to use this newfound knowledge to eventually work on his own pharmaceutical startup, provided that he can raise the capital.
He hates when things are disorganized, and as Director of Operations, does his best to prevent those kind of catastrophes. Some even claim he does a good job!
He is really socially awkward, even though people sometimes mistake that for his sense of humor. However, he is nice enough on his good days, and only bites on Wednesdays.
Next time you see him, you should definitely go say hello!

James McNamara is a junior studying Math and Computer Science, with a core focus on quantitative finance and computational trading.

This semester he will be assisting Ze’ev Klapow with the development and instruction of the iMadeIT program.
The three hours a week he doesn’t spend coding or entrepreneur-ing, you can likely find James rewatching cheesy 90’s sitcoms or running all across Boston in the shortest shorts engineers have been able to develop.

From design to engineering, Maddie is curious about everything and loves entrepreneurship because it exposes her to so many different disciplines, industries, and really cool people.

Going into her third year at NEU, she is currently on co-op at a local video marketing startup called Wistia. Maddie loves learning about product design, branding, awesome startups, and customer relationships. Her not-so-secret obsessions are quirky business cards, nerdy books, and inserting the word "bro" into other words (Exhibit A: Bilbro Baggins). She also dabbles in referring to herself in the third-person.
Want to know more? Get in touch with Maddie on LinkedIn, see how weird she really is on Twitter, or just walk up and challenge her to recite as many "bro" words as she can at the next E-Club meeting.
