Timothy Tello

Business Developer

“Who you know matters just as much as what you know.”


Irvine, Ca

Los Angeles-based entrepreneur, Timothy Tello, specializes in business development for cryptocurrency and video games. His knack for business and seeing projects through from start to finish is rooted in his own upbringing. Born in Texas and raised in Littleton, Colorado, he grew up surrounded by entrepreneurs his whole life: his mother founded the well-known company CheapTickets.com and as a young adult Tim worked as a consultant for oil sales. 

He is innovation-focused and takes a methodical approach to his work. He tells FYG that he can work anywhere and anytime as long as he has access to the internet. In 2016, he left his role at GameScribes/GTL Media and co-founded Sugar Glazed Games, a company that focuses on creating high-quality games for mobile devices while minimizing operational costs. Just a couple of years later in 2018, he was promoted to Chief Operating Officer at Pocketful of Quarters. His current role helps establish seamless workflows for game developers while accelerating their financial returns.

He is an active learner that enjoys continuing his education. He first attended Texas State University from 2008 to 2011 and achieved a Bachelor’s degree in History. He attained a second Bachelor’s degree at Western Governors University, this time for Marketing Management. Currently, he is enrolled at the Harvard Business School for Entrepreneurial Studies. He is a hustler, but works efficiently. He is happiest with keeping things simple, straightforward, and expending little excess. He is also a known golf enthusiast and enjoys seeing it as both a mental challenge and an outlet.
