Education

In 2000, Winklevoss enrolled at Harvard University for his undergraduate studies and graduated in 2004 with an AB degree in economics. While at Harvard, he was a member of the men's varsity crew, the Porcellian Club, and the Hasty Pudding Club.  In 2009, Winklevoss obtained an MBA from the Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford. 

Career

In 2002, Winklevoss, along with his brother and fellow Harvard classmate Divya Narendra, founded HarvardConnection, a social network for Harvard students. They conceived of the idea as a better way to connect with fellow students at Harvard University and other universities. The concept ultimately expanded to other schools around the country.

However, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was accused of breaking an agreement with the Winklevoss brothers and Narendra, copying their idea, and illegally using source code intended for the website he was hired to create. A lawsuit was filed, and a settlement agreement for both cases was reached in February 2008, reportedly valued at $65 million.

In addition to his ventures in the tech industry, Winklevoss co-founded the social media website Guest of a Guest with Rachelle Hruska. 

In 2013, he and his brother founded Gemini, a cryptocurrency exchange, which allows users to buy, sell, and store cryptocurrencies. In 2021, Forbes estimated that each twin had a cryptocurrency holding of $1.4 billion.

Personal Life

Winklevoss began showing a keen interest in technology at an early age. Along with his brother, he taught himself HTML when he was just 13 years old and started a web-page company that developed websites for businesses. Winklevoss attended the Brunswick School for high school and was a member of the crew program, which he co-founded with Tyler during his junior year. He also studied Latin and Ancient Greek in high school, showing a fondness for the classics.

In addition to his work in the cryptocurrency and technology industries, Cameron is an excellent athlete in his own right. He started his rowing journey at the age of 15. He began his training at the Saugatuck Rowing Club on the Saugatuck River in 1997, as encouraged by family friends. Despite his high school not having a crew program, he and his brother founded one during his junior year.

At the Olympic Games in Beijing in 2008, he competed in the men's pair rowing event and ended up finishing in sixth place.  In 2009, Cameron won a bronze medal at the Rowing World Cup in Lucerne, Switzerland.
