Event Details

Hunter Hillenmeyer, OverDog

Hunter serves as President and Co-Founder of OverDog. He played eight seasons for the Chicago Bears, during five of which he served as a Board Member for the NFLPA. In addition to his role as Office Linebacker, Hunter manages the athlete user experience and serves as de facto CMO. Hunter remains adamant that losing 30 pounds and trading in his southern shag haircut for a more manageable mop has nothing to do with his desire to look the part of a start-up co-founder. Now in his second VC-funded start-up, Hunter still refuses to change out his “fat crocodile dundee” LinkedIn photo. He received his BA from Vanderbilt University and MBA from Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management. He lives in the suburbs of Chicago with his wife Shannon and daughters Harper and Brynn.
