The founders hope to create a community of writers that use the site to practice writing and review others' work. Users can comment on a piece or provide line-by-line edits.

Get eyes and edits on your writing.

That’s the idea behind Daily Them.es, a Center City edtech startup from three Yale graduates, including one who worked at a TechStars Boston company.

The founders hope to create a community of writers that use the site to practice writing and review others’ work. Users can comment on a piece or provide line-by-line edits. Eventually, they hope to have a premium version of the site where expert reviewers hold writing programs for high school students, they said.

Founders Hassan Siddiq, Harley Trung and Nikhil Harish Seshan chose to build their startup in Philadelphia because it’s both a “college town and a business hub,” said Siddiq, who is 27 and used to work at Citigroup. Seshan, 28, is also currently attending Wharton. Trung, 28, cofounded a TechStars Boston startup called Social Sci.

The three cofounders work out of a home office in Center City.
