Updated: Feb 28

Bridgit Mendler, known for playing Teddy Duncan on the Disney Channeloriginal series Good Luck Charlie, is taking a giant leap into the cosmos.

On Monday, the 31-year-old actress and singer-songwriter confirmed on X, formerly known as Twitter, that she co-founded a California-based satellite data startup called Northwood Space and will be its CEO.

“Expect the unexpected!” she responded to a tweet from a CNBC reporter who was first to break the news.

The start-up received $6.3 million in seed funding from investors, according to Mendler, and will design “ground infrastructure” to help accelerate the mass adoption of satellite technology. It hopes to create “a data highway between Earth and space.”

Mendler is also recognized and admired for her philanthropy and activism. In 2010, she became ambassador to First Book, a service that encourages reading and provides books to children in need. In 2012, she partnered with Target for its “Give with Target” campaign, which provided kids with school supplies.

According to Business Insider, Mendler began studying at the University of Southern California in 2013, graduating in 2016. She then began working at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab in 2017, before enrolling in the school’s graduate program in 2018.

Per her LinkedIn profile, Mendler began a doctorate in philosophy at MIT in 2020. She enrolled at Harvard Law School the following year. She also briefly worked at the Federal Communications Commission.

Mendler told CNBC that she “completely fell in love with space law” during her time working at the FCC's Space Bureau. Northwood Space, she explained, aims to mass produce ground stations — large antennas that connect to satellites in space.
