Know who you should, but don't
New to the silicon valley or live here and wanna get right into the thick of it?
I love connecting people with who they should know, but don't.
Curating quality community seems one of our bottlenecks up Maslow's hierarchy of needs.
Let me change that for you.
Tell me what you're into, chances are high that I'll know someone who can help - if not immediately, then down the line at some point.
PLEASE - be coherent in your ask!
There are a zillion people here who are 'looking for a cofounder' which basically means 'I'm looking for technical talent who will do all the hard work on my half baked idea that I can't appreciate and who I will offer an insultingly low amount of equity'
So be specific. Tell me exactly how you you see whatever connection I may be able to make as positive expected value for both of you. I can't afford to connect people if I don't do some amount of due diligence - I anticipate the social proof layer through me to remain high fidelity. I will remove this listing if I feel like I cannot easily identify the noise from the signal.
