Thomas Totten '87: Actuaries and Startups

October 27, 2016

Totten Tom

On October 5, distinguished actuary, CEO, and Notre Dame alumnus Thomas Totten ’87 gave a talk to undergraduates entitled “Actuaries and Startups.” Intended for students with both actuarial and entrepreneurial futures in mind, the lecture used Totten’s own actuary-based startup to exemplify how the two fields can complement each other, and accomplish amazing things. The talk was in many ways a preview to a new course available next spring, in which undergraduates will receive hands-on experience doing real actuarial work pertinent to Totten’s company.
