About.me acquisition and the mentorships


A super simple personal profile tool, About.me, has been acquired by AOL recently (you can learn why CEO Tony Conrad sold his company quickly). This service is amazing. They had 400,000 beta testers before announced publicly!

One of About.me’s secret recipes: They have a bunch of strong mentors! About.me advisors include Twitter’s Dick Costolo, Digg’s Kevin Rose, WordPress’ Matt Mullenweg, Engadget’s Ryan Block.

So, if you want to launch a startup  (or already run a startup), go find your own mentors, too! They might be coming from various fields like technology, business, finance, media etc. Learn from them, then decide by yourself. And let’s see what happen.
