Co-founders Spencer & Linda grew up together in New York attending Hunter College Campus Schools from Kindergarten through 12th grade. Due to a dispute over pokemon trading cards in 2nd grade, they considered each other mortal enemies until high school when they put aside their differences and ended up becoming best friends. After High School, Linda went to Boston College where she immersed herself in the world of computer science and mobile app development. Spencer spent a year working in EdTech while he fenced internationally for Team USA before ultimately attending The University of Chicago to study economics. The pair concluded that a perfect set of circumstances was brewing for a new social network to come and redefine the game. Realizing that this was not an opportunity that could wait, they co-founded Besst and are now working tirelessly to bring their revolutionary vision to fruition.
