Kickstarted! Tuckerman & Co. Launches at Yale
Jonas Clark '15 took a deep breath. "How am I doing? I'm great. Tired. But I signed up for this. We didn't apply anywhere else. We knew we were coming to SOM. We knew we were going to start this business."
It had been barely a week since Clark and his fiancé, Amanda Rinderle (also SOM '15), had launched a website and a Kickstarter campaign for their organic cotton dress shirt line. They had also just incorporated as a Benefit Corporation, hosted a launch party, won reSet's top prize for Social Enterprise, and were fielding interviews left and right. Tuckerman & Co. was live. And there wasn't a lot of time to breathe. They've taken one day off this year. It was the day they got engaged.
Did I mention that they're both full-time students at Yale SOM?
