About Richard

I recently left the world of investing to found a tech startup. I have a team of two technical experts working with me on a part time basis, and I am looking for a full time technical co-founder as well as a UI/UX/graphical designer. We are building a website and app to help users answer the question "What do you want to do tonight?" in a single place, quickly and painlessly. Essentially, imagine if Yelp included movies, concerts, bars, museums, art galleries, parks, and anything else that users might want to spend time doing, but showed each user a personalized star rating based on a deep understanding of that user's individual interests and preferences - similar to how OKCupid works. Our key advantage is a unique process for assessing users' interests with only a minimal time commitment from the user. Also, while I am primarily focusing on the business aspects of this project, I do have some technical skills and am actively participating both in writing our code and developing our algorithmic strategy.
