A commonsense guide to successful internet dating pdf
An undergrad could build something better as a class project. Online dating is a valuable business now, and it might be worth a hundred times as much if it worked.
But what people have now is often so bad that it doesn't take brilliance to do better.
And while they probably have bigger ambitions now, this alone brings them a billion dollars a year.
There are plenty of other areas that are just as backward as search was before Google.
A lot of would-be startup founders think the key to the whole process is the initial idea, and from that point all you have to do is execute. If you go to VC firms with a brilliant idea that you'll tell them about if they sign a nondisclosure agreement, most will tell you to get lost. The market price is less than the inconvenience of signing an NDA.
Another sign of how little the initial idea is worth is the number of startups that change their plan en route.
