Today's Business model showcase: HackMatch

Company speed dating for hackers

We recently spotted HackMatch company profile while browsing on AngelList. It was featured in the Trending with Customers section so we dove right into it. HackMatch is a very basic marketplace idea, where developers/hackers/programmers are shown a carousel of potential startup companies that might be a good fit for work/collaboration. They aptly describe themselves as "Tinder for Hackers". Some of the startups featured in the site's "scrolling browsing" were (3D printing), Layer (like Twillio but for video and chat) and MakerBot (3D printing). After the user has found a startup, they can click on the "Hell Yeah" button to start a direct connection with the startup. I'd assume only startups with open positions are listed. Simple yet useful.
