My name is Tim Huntley. I’m 46 years, live in Chapel Hill, North Carolina with my wife, Jenny, and our twin boys, Neil and Evan. That’s them below, demonstrating their hurdling abilities.
I was raised in Union County, North Carolina where I was the classic computer geek. Math and science came easy, athletics less so, and dating, well let’s not talk about that. My interest in computers led to a clear-cut decision on what I wanted to study in college. So in 1985, I packed my bags and headed for NC State University in Raleigh.
After college and eager to make my mark, I went to work for IBM, but I discovered that a big company environment wasn’t right for me. Thankfully, I made some great friends who were much smarter, and we left IBM in 1995 to start our own company, Ganymede Software. Over the course of the next five years, we raised money from venture capitalists, grew to over 100 people, and sold the company in early 2000. You can read more about that part of my life here.
I am currently an Entrepreneur in Residence at The Startup Factory in Durham, North Carolina, and I have created a website for early stage entrepreneurs at An Entrepreneurial Life. In addition, I am on the board of the Track and Field Athletes Association, and I have a fitness website called My Athletic Life.
Thanks for reading.
