New York, NY (PRWEB) January 10, 2016
Venture capitalist Adam Dell went on LinkedIn to find a technical co-founder for his next startup. In a post he said, "It's a new year and I want to try something different on LinkedIn. I am looking for a technical founder to join me as I start my next company - Clarity. We are building a financial health monitor. If you are interested, please contact me on LinkedIn. Thank you."
When asked why he looked to LinkedIn to find a co-founder he responded, "There is a deep well of technical talent stuck inside banks, credit card companies, insurance companies and other financial institutions. Those individuals have a front row seat to the changes that are empowering consumers to take control of their financial health. Perhaps there is someone in the LinkedIn community who has the technical skills, vision and passion necessary to help reinvent that industry."
