TechBUZZ Stage! 


Timothy Chi
Co-Founder & CEO, WeddingWire

Timothy founded WeddingWire after planning his wedding. As a groom, he experienced first hand how difficult it was to execute on the wedding plans. As a technologist, he couldn't find an online resource that would help him plan more efficiently. Together with his cofounders, Jeff, Lee, and Sonny, they threw 4 desks into his empty living room in Chevy Chase, Maryland and WeddingWire was born. They set out to utilize their collective experience in technology to build a technology company that would revolutionize the wedding and event industry. Previously, Timothy co-founded Blackboard Inc in 1998. While at Blackboard, Timothy pioneered many of Blackboard's product and strategic initiatives, helping the company grow to over 600 employees and a valuation of over $750 Million. Timothy holds a B.S. degree in Operations Research/Industrial Engineering from Cornell University and a Master's of Science degree in Engineering Management from Tufts University. Tim is a member of the Young Professionals Organization in Washington, D.C.
