A simple way to put your network to work.


What is Core?

Cores are professional micro-networks that help driven people learn faster and get more done. They start with no more than 10 people -- who the user already knows -- and expand over time.

How Core works

Core works by helping you leverage your existing connections into a highly active micro-network of trusted confidants, collaborators and supporters.

If Linkedin is the economic graph that indexes all your professional relationships, Core is the best way to change the source data behind it.

People use Core for

Launching a new venture

Learning a new skill

Working towards a promotion or career milestone

Closing a big deal / account

Keeping non-profit backers in the loop

Why Core Works

Core works because it solves for bystander effects that occur in large networks. Put simply, the more people in a network, the less likely each is to provide substantive support.

People who build Cores make more progress in less time, learn faster, and cultivate powerful professional identities. They make their network work.


In our prototyping to date, 90% of people invited to Cores have accepted and we’ve seen an 80% weekly response rate across the board. Aspiring entrepreneurs -- from South Africa to New York -- have met cofounders, closed investors, and even won free legal services while using Core.

We're currently testing Core as a professional development tool with young professionals from companies like Christies and Merill Lynch as well.
