"Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success."- Henry Ford

The Startup Team for TDDM were simply EMUN 8.0 students who had their own visions of creating the world a better place. Each individual had their own community resolution, but did not know how to effectively raise awareness about it.

When Melisa founded the TDDM podcast, the creation of the startup team not only focused on building TDDM a platform for themselves, but for the future where anyone can have their voices be heard.
