National Science Foundation I-Corps Regional 2014 Accelerator Program Completed
As you might remember from our post a few weeks ago, SkillGravity got accepted into the Bay Area National Science Foundation (NSF) Innovation Corps accelerator program sponsored by the University of California Berkeley, Stanford and University of California San Francisco (UCSF)
Originally there were over 20 teams who just like SkillGravity wanted to get the opportunity to gather not only feedback from their customers but also mentorship from some highly experienced educators in the fields of business and startups in general. Some of the teams, however, couldn’t take the pressure and decided to drop out of the accelerator which reduced the amount of startups to 18.

SkillGravity presents “Today’s Facts: Networking Obstacles”
Today we face many networking obstacles and this was the main reason behind the creation of SkillGravity. The excess of information and people we meet can be overwhelming, so using a tool that simplifies this process to the bone is a must. These challenges of course don’t apply only to single individuals but also to professional communities, enterprises and mainly HR companies and staffing agencies.

People… People everywhere… Yes, like it or not, we are all surrounded by people we have to communicate with- from the nanny, to the Safeway clerk, to the big shot Account Executive who has no idea who you are and you have to impress them in order to get that so desired promotion. How would you be sure, however, that that same Account Executive knows you and recognizes your existence? How many times have YOU been in a situation where you are 100% sure you will never forget someone you just met, put their business card in your pocket for it never to be thought of again?
