About Yaakov

I firmly believe that social media is fundamentally broken.

From a consumer standpoint, instead of helping people save time and money by helping them share knowledge more effectively, social media has become a never-ending popularity contest.

From a business standpoint, instead of helping businesses acquire new customers and increase sales, social media has become a huge time suck and bottomless money pit.

I want to change all that.

Paction (paction.co) is a grand initiative to make social media more scalable and actionable.

I recently soft launched the first iteration of Paction which allows people to rate & share their Amazon purchases with their trusted friends and to discover amazing new products in return. (Interested in checking it out?
Message me for an invite code.)

Paction is self-funded. I currently put in 40--50+ hours a week into Paction. I'm a full stack engineer by trade and I use these skills to build Paction. I developed the business case for Paction at the Founders Institute program.

I'm looking for a co-founder who shares my passion for helping people share information more effectively and can help me take Paction to the next level.

Specifically, I am looking for a co-founder who can complement my technical strengths with the following skill sets: business, marketing (growth hacking!), and fundraising.

Let's change the world together!
