Marie Hepfer's Classroom

Director of Studies


I help students who would like to learn about getting a startup off the ground. I tailor curricula to individuals' strengths to help them develop, prototype, and grow their idea. For technical startups, I have additional expertise in web development and data science. I'm excited to help students get things running quickly.

About me

I've worked with startups at various points in their lifecycle, between ideation and post-Series A funding. I specialize in data science for early-stage companies but have worked in many areas - from managing a team to web design.
