Are you an investor or entrepreneur?

Entrepreneur.

If you are an entrepreneur, tell us about your startup?

A user creates a challenge page on BeExtraordinary.org declaring the action they will take if a specific amount of money is raised for the charity of their choice. That challenge is then promoted via a Facebook app, blog widget, form email, etc.

If you are an investor, what do you invest in?

No answer yet

What value do you add to the group?

I'm an original thinker and schemer who people generally find entertaining and/or profound. As 22 year old who grew up in New York, I'm connecting my network of young entrepreneurs with my parents network of established advertising and tech types.

What would you like to get out of the group?

I'm looking for organic connections with the NY entrepreneurial community. I'm young, so I don't have an extensive friend network with whom I can 'talk shop.' I'm also looking for funding for my businesses and would like to meet VCs.

Introduction

Hi. I'm a New York native and graduated from Northwestern last spring. I'm the co-founder and CEO of BeExtraordinary.org,­ a social charity website that will be launching October 1. I'd like to meet/help start other entrepreneurs and VCs.
