Remember The Dating Game? Watch Our Version: The Startup Game

While the employment scene remains moribund, startup mania is taking hold across the country. Everywhere you turn, someone’s designing an app, starting a web site, a platform, a portal or some other whizziwig. But how do you know if your idea will work? And more importantly, how do you meet an investor, much less seduce him (it’s usually a him) into ponying up some cash? Where do all those VCs hang out anyway? Is there a Money Bar somewhere in the Financial District where they belly up for beer?

We at mediabistro.com remember the good old days, when such match-making was a more civilized and personal affair, like on The Dating Game.

So, we’ve decided to re-purpose The Dating Game concept for all you wannabe entrepreneurs out there. On our show, The Startup Game, we fix up a real live investor with potential “mates” (Startup CEOs). Check out the results of our first little love match and do let us know what you think.
