About Shaun and Lauren Salzberg

Shaun and Lauren Salzberg

 

Shaun began his career as a software engineer, after graduating from Columbia University. He later made the switch to creating physical products after earning a masters degree from MIT. 

Lauren spent a decade helping people make good decisions with their money as a certified financial planner and personal finance journalist. Her passion has always been to make intimidating topics like money more approachable. 

Shaun and Lauren's paths first crossed in the New York City startup world in 2010. They have been together since 2014 and got married in 2019, sharing all of the ups and downs of entrepreneurial life together. 

Shaun is the driving creative force and product designer behind The Master Theorem Games. Lauren handles the business side of things and has been known to rein in Shaun's creativity when it goes a little too far. 

What motivates Shaun:

  • Learning new things
  • Being creative
  • Designing products that people love
  • Reducing his plastic use (you'll notice less and less plastic in our games as we continue to find creative ways to be more eco-friendly)

What motivates Lauren: 

  • Meeting new people
  • Optimization and organization
  • Spreading the word that math games are fun!
  • Bringing more collaboration and less competition to family game nights
