So this chick is getting paid 2.1 million dollars to make a more sophisticated and upscale version of tinder for the most driven, interesting, serious and successful people of the world. Okay fine.
Lets Role Play a little Shark Tank Scenario:
Salsa: I like the idea, but lets talk numbers. What do you numbers look like?
Chick: Well lets see, “Since November, the app has paired 20,000 people, resulting in 19 couples”
(this isn’t exaggerated at all- that is a real quote from that article)
Salsa: Assuming that half those are guys and half those are girls, you’re telling me that out of 10,000 potential couples- you’ve produced 19. Seems low.
Chick: Maybe, but we used LinkedIn to see if their worthy though!
Salsa: you do realize that 19/10000= 0.19% chance of finding someone good enough to date. Your success rate doesn’t even amount to One fifth of ONE PERCENT right?
*Chick walks out the door*
That was fun. Who the hell are these people that put up all these ridiculous amounts of cash for mediocre to below average ideas with absolutely no history of success? $2.1 million. Mind blowing.
FYI- That briefcase is what $2 million in cash looks like.
