Harry Lindner is the founder. This is the first for-profit he has founded, although he has founded six other organizations in the past. His experience comes from founding a student or community groups dedicated to solving specific problems. His vision for EduSex began as a way to confront a problem he had growing up -- the false belief that he could give himself an STD. Harry draws motivation from his experience to make sure adolescents are not misinformed when it comes to sex education. He also plans for EduSex to be profitable, because it is actually addressing a very real problems (as opposed to traditional startups that are founded around a new technology) and it uses proven methodologies for success. He plans for a 10 figure exit.
Upon graduating from grad school, he entered his idea into
a competition -- 3 Day Startup. It performed very well. Two of his original teammates are continuing to work with him:
Tom Ahn and Sam Acuña. All three of them received awards in the competition.
The idea also caught the interest of a hight-sought mobile development company that has agreed to build out the mobile website and app
up-front, deferring payment until the project has generated revenue. This kind of
working relationship is unprecedented for this development company, and it speaks to the EduSex's appeal.
