tiffany chiu
Tiffany is the founder of otteroo. Her vision for otteroo stemmed from her practical problem-solving attitude. She loves to tackle problems but not only that, she loves to dive in and commit herself entirely to building on preliminary concepts and transforming them into daily essentials that are completely out of the box, 120% necessary, consistently reliable and gives the owner full bragging rights. The combination of her engineering background from Cornell University and her business acumen honed from completing her MBA at MIT, Tiffany worked tirelessly until she was able to develop an otteroo design that has her “otter” of approval.

Emi is our branding & communications expert and also a mother of an almost four year old girl.

eleanor lee
Eleanor is our operations director and Tiffany's go-to person for the multitude of projects involved in starting a new business. Until recently, Eleanor dedicated her professional life to civil service, undertaking tasks that she is not allowed to talk about (or else…). Upon her relocation to the San Francisco Bay area, she has adopted the startup spirit, bringing her training in law, writing and research to fledgling companies. Eleanor and Tiffany are exercise buddies so Eleanor knew about otteroo before she got involved professionally. Now she is very excited about this new company and can’t wait until she has an otteroo baby of her own!
