This man will pay you $10,000 to find him a girlfriend

| July 7, 2015 | 0 Comments



This Alabama man has been on 30 unsuccessful dates in the past the past ten months — to remedy this situation, he created a website offering a $10,000 reward to anyone who can find him a girlfriend. 

Ren Lu You is a 29-year-old living in Birmingham, Alabama. 

He’s a recent Harvard Business School graduate and works full-time as a private equity associate. 

There’s just one problem: He can’t seem to find the right woman.

 To remedy this situation, You created his own dating website, dateren.com, where people can submit female friends who might like to date You.

As an incentive, if You and a woman submitted to the site wind up dating for more than six months, You says he will pay $10,000 to the person who helped set them up (unless You’s future girlfriend submits herself, in which case she would not be eligible for the cash reward).  

(It’s worth mentioning here that we were initially suspicious about the possible word play here. His last name is You … he says “I’ll pay you” … could he mean … he’ll pay himself? That would be smart and kind of funny! But then we got out of our own heads.)

Finding the woman of his dreams is worth at least $10,000 to You. He compares finding a potential partner to purchasing other “big-ticket items” such as a car or a house. 

“I would argue that all these things pale in importance to finding somebody you get along with and you may end up marrying,” You told BI. “So $10,000 seemed pretty reasonable.”

Before starting his own dating site, You was disappointed by his experiences with standard dating techniques.

“I’ve been on a bunch of dates and gone through all the usual methods: friends of friends, introductions through coworkers, OkCupid, Match.com, Tinder, everything,” You told Business Insider of his failed dating efforts. 

Even though he was going on plenty of dates, he wasn’t meeting the kinds of women he envisioned potentially spending the rest of his life with.

“With online dating you have this problem of adverse selection,” You explained. “Only the people who self-select into a particular dating website are the people you have access to.” 

Unlike other dating websites, women can be involuntarily submitted to You’s website. 

“With this site I have access to basically everybody,” You noted to BI. “You don’t have to see the site or know who I am, you just have to know somebody who has seen the site.” 

You made sure to let his family and friends know what he was up to before starting this new dating adventure.

“I understand there’s always the potential hazard of people thinking you’re an a—— and the internet deciding it doesn’t like what you’re doing,” You said of his concerns in starting the website. 

For now, You is just trying to streamline the process of finding a woman who he can call his girlfriend, and maybe someday, his wife. “I’m trying to make dating as efficient as possible,” he said.

Don’t Expect Crimson Peak To Tell A Normal Haunted House Story

| July 7, 2015 | 0 Comments




“Normal” is not typically a word associated with the works of Guillermo del Toro, and it seems that trend will continue with his his upcoming haunted house thriller Crimson Peak. How do we know this? Because del Toro really even refuses to call it a “haunted house movie,” instead seeing it as something much, much more.

Sheryl Sandberg joins the board of SurveyMonkey, where her late husband was CEO

| July 7, 2015 | 0 Comments



Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg has joined the board of directors of SurveyMonkey, the Silicon Valley start-up at which her late husband was the CEO, according to the New York Times.

Sandberg said she was joining SurveyMonkey, which offers online polling services, to help realize the vision  of building a lasting company that impacts the way the world does business, according to the Times report. 

Sandberg’s husband, Dave Goldberg, who was SurveyMonkey’s CEO for six years, died unexpectedly while on exercising on vacation in Mexico in May. Goldberg, a well-liked and much-respected figure in Silicon Valley, grew the company from a staff of 14 to more than 500 employees with a valuation of roughly $2 billion, the report said.

SurveyMonkey also appointed David Ebersman, the former CFO of Facebook, to its board.

The did not immediately respond to an inquiry about the news.

Why one of the most successful people in tech took the No. 2 job at a startup

| July 7, 2015 | 0 Comments



Seven months ago, one of the most successful entrepreneurs and angel investors in tech history, David Sacks, shocked everyone by taking the COO job at young, fast-growing startup Zenefits.

Sacks is a card-carrying member of the PayPal “mafia,” who have gone on to massive success in Silicon Valley. He was the COO of PayPal from 1999 to 2002 until the company’s sale to eBay, then founded two successful startups: Yammer, which Microsoft bought for $1.2 billion in 2012, and genealogy site Geni, which MyHeritage bought for $25 million in 2012.

He’s also an an angel investor in companies like Twitter Uber, SpaceX, Airbnb, Scribd, AngelList, Slack, Eventbrite, Eventbrite, SurveyMonkey, Lyft, and dozens of others.

He even quit the Valley for a while, moved to L.A., and produced the hit film “Thank You For Smoking.”

He can do anything he wants. And yet, he chose to join a startup and not as CEO.

Why? Because he fell in love with the company, he says.

“Zenefits was honestly the most exciting company that I’ve seen that needed my help,” he told Business Insider.

“I was talking to a few VC firms and being actively courted by them. Then I met with [founder] Parker [Conrad] and he told me his vision for this company. The clarity he had about what he was building, it was the clearest vision I’ve heard from a founder CEO. It got me very excited,” he said.

Another reason: He’s already done it all and isn’t hung up on being the boss.

“It’s less about what my title is and that sort of thing and more about just being able to work on a company. In addition to being a entrepreneur and having founded stuff, I’ve been active as an angel investor. So I’ve got experience being supportive of other people’s visions, I’ve always had the ability to do that,” he said.

So why not become a VC?

“I thought it would be more fun to go all in working on one company that I thought was most exciting, instead of spreading out efforts to me.”

But there’s one more reason that goes to the heart of it all: He thinks Zenefits will be the “next Google” in terms of its financial success. It’s already one of the fastest growing startups in history.

“If I chose to be COO of some very big established company, a Google or something like that, you wouldn’t be asking why. That seems a lot less fun to me, like the heavy lifting was already done by other people. I think Zenefits can be one of those generational companies,” he says.

With his track record on startups, a vote of confidence like that is akin to the Oracle of “The Matrix” telling Neo that he’s”The One.”

Sacks is also an investor in Zenefits, so like co-founders CEO Parker Conrad and CTO Laks Srini, he’s not just an employee, but has a stake of unknown size.

Typically disregarded brain lesions may warn of heightened stroke risk

| July 6, 2015 | 0 Comments




Scientists have found that very small brain lesions noted on brain imaging that would typically be disregarded by clinicians are associated with a heightened risk of stroke and death. The discovery about these tiny lesions — areas of the brain where tissue may have been damaged by injury or disease — may help physicians identify people at risk of stroke and death as early as middle age.
