Once upon a time, in the land of Hollywood, there lived a star who decided to venture beyond the glitz and glam of showbiz into the vast expanse of the cosmos.

Yes, you guessed it right. Bridgit Mendler, the beloved face from Disney Channel’s Good Luck Charlie, is making interstellar waves.

Picture this: it’s a regular Monday, but not so regular for Bridgit.

She hops onto the virtual streets of X (you might know it as Twitter) to drop a bombshell—she’s not just another Hollywood starlet; she’s the co-founder and CEO of Northwood Space, a startup shooting for the stars in California.

“Expect the unexpected!” she teases in response to a curious CNBC reporter who stumbled upon her cosmic revelation.

And boy, did she deliver the unexpected. This startup bagged a cool $6.3 million in seed funding. Talk about making it rain… meteorites?

Now, what does Northwood Space do, you ask? Well, strap in because it’s about to get interesting.

They’re crafting the backbone of a “data highway” between our blue marble and the great unknown.

Imagine it like building a superhighway connecting Earth to outer space, complete with cosmic rest stops and intergalactic service stations. Cool, right?

But wait, there’s more. Bridgit’s partner-in-crime in this cosmic caper is none other than her hubby, Griffin Cleverly, who’s donning the hat of Chief Technology Officer. It’s a match made in the stars, quite literally.

And just when you think you’ve seen it all, Bridgit drops another bombshell. She’s not just conquering galaxies; she’s a mom to a 4-year-old boy.

But here’s the kicker—she fostered him in 2021 and officially adopted him around Christmas 2022. Cue the collective “awws.”

So, what’s the deal with Bridgit Mendler anyway? Well, aside from rocking the Disney scene as Teddy Duncan in Good Luck Charlie and serenading us with Lemonade Mouth tunes, she’s been spreading sunshine with her philanthropic ventures.

From promoting reading with First Book to teaming up with Target to deck out kids with school supplies, she’s been a real-life fairy godmother to many.

But life after Disney didn’t just mean chilling on cloud nine for Bridgit. Nope, she dived headfirst into academia.

Yep, you heard that right. She traded her Mickey ears for a graduation cap, earning her stripes at the University of Southern California before rubbing shoulders with brainiacs at MIT.

And guess what? She’s currently on a mission to crack the mysteries of the universe, pursuing a doctorate at MIT and studying law at Harvard. Talk about brains and beauty.

And how did she land among the stars, you ask? Well, it all started with a little love affair with space law during her stint at the FCC’s Space Bureau.

That’s where the seeds of Northwood Space were planted—a vision to make space data as accessible as Wi-Fi.

So, there you have it, folks. Bridgit Mendler, the Disney darling turned cosmic entrepreneur, rewriting the stars and rewriting the rules.

It’s a tale of shooting for the moon and landing among the stars. And who knows? Maybe one day, we’ll all be cruising the cosmic highways she helped pave, waving at passing satellites like old friends on a road trip through the galaxy.
