Speed Dating /Networking Legacy & Launches (A Match Making Site for Seniors and Teens)
A great way to build a mentor mentee relationship is for everyone to come to the table with something to offer.
You don’t need to spend hours trying to figure out if you have a match, if your skills and beliefs are organized and presented in a clear system, that uses some simple analytics to find likely connections, and then organizes a “Skype Speed Meet”. Like a Match.Com for mentoring.
How would you describe your idea in one sentence?
This is a match making site for seniors and teens that uses dating site like analytics to help make a good match.
