Startups are a little bit like bees. They are busy getting on with making the honey, they sometimes don’t see what other bees are doing. Sometimes when they are made aware of others bees – they collaborate and communicate.
OK – I don’t know for sure that’s what they do, I just really like the picture.

Riddle: What everything doesn’t see everything else?
So our experiment will center on inviting some startups (basically the ones with the most similarities) to participate in the experiment. If they agree, we’ll send them a calendar link to book a call with each other (we’ll do this so we can get a notification that the conversation happens and get some feedback too).
We don’t know what will happen, but we hope these kind of things will:
Collaboration on their idea?
Emerge a whole new/better idea they can both build and raise for (if appropriate) – better to win together than lose individually, no?
We’ll be rolling this out, after a few tweaks to the serendipity engine early week commencing July 12. Stay tuned.
