Ted Cope brings his passion, vision, energy, intellect, and network to the Stardust-Startup Factory. Retiring after 42+ years of government service, Ted is learning new ways to put a dent in the evil empire of the status quo mindset from the private sector perspective. He inspires those he works with to challenge conventional wisdom. Ted strives to help those he works with imagine, explore, innovate, and ultimately to execute what others thought impossible. He truly embodies the "Rebel Outpost" philosophy. He is currently a consultant for Thermopylae Sciences + Technology, strengthening information sharing initiatives to enhance international law enforcement efforts addressing illicit trade. Ted's life links to all of the Stardust-Startup Factory focus areas--sustainability, health, learning.
