|Mei Shenemail@example.com||CEE||looking for teammates who's interested in Energy/Clean tech/Education||I'm an engineer with some background and experience in renewable energy/energy efficiency market. I have some basic idea in improving the energy efficiency/reducing electricity bills for customers by tracking their energy use data(making them share their daily energy use data and making comparison with others thus encouraging people to improve energy efficiency through personal behavior). Interested to form a team focusing on energy startups or clean tech startups. Besides energy, education startup is also my exciting point. So please also let me know if you are looking for teammates who have passion in education.|
|Bryce Meredigfirstname.lastname@example.org||GSB||Looking for brilliant, top-notch teammates who have data mining/machine learning expertise (not just applying existing codes/methods, but algorithm development)||I'm at the GSB after completing a PhD at Northwestern in computational materials science; my research focused on applying data mining and optimization algorithms to materials problems (recent paper: http://www.nature.com/nmat/journal/vaop/ncurrent/abs/nmat3490.html).|
Now I'm interested in building an idea I have for revolutionizing the way scientists and researchers search and access the literature. We will have to overcome a number of exciting/challenging "big data"-oriented technical problems, and when we do, I am quite confident that the business end of things will work out nicely.

|Herbert Yangemail@example.com||GSB Sloan||Looking for teammates who are interested in startups in Internet, mobile applications, B2C/B2B services. Ping me to chat||main objectives for joining this class: 1) make more friends with hands-on tech skills + strong desire for startup + stay in the Bay area beyond Stanford; 2) learn more about the product design phase of launching a startup.

|Interested in disrupting an industry worth $200 billion in the U.S. alone? |
For centuries, becoming an “inventor” has been a hard gig to crack. Complexities relating to financing, engineering, distribution, marketing and legalities have stood in the way of brilliant people executing on their great ideas. From my own experience (my fashion label -> www.knightsandroses.com), I know the painpoint is even bigger in the fasion / apparel industry AND I know we can solve it!!
Quirky has recently raised $68 million from Andreessen Horowitz and has rapidly changed the way the world thinks about product development.
Join us to apply lessons learned from Quirky on the fashion industry. Instead of buying Bonobos or subscribing for a Trunkclub (who both are doing really well), let's crowdsource fasion / apparel designs and take care of financing, production, distribution, and marketing for the designers. Such a platform is super scalable and can be executed in a very short time.
It seems shocking that no one has done this yet but the fashion industry is known for its rigidity and very low level of innovation!
|Konstantin Bayandinfirstname.lastname@example.org||MBA2||Looking for engineers and UI guys interested in applications of machine learning to big data problems.||I have a Master's in Physics. I did research in quantum computers right after university. I did my PhD but dropped out by the end, and then I worked at the Boston Consulting Group for three years.|
I am now stronlgy interested in artificial intelligence and applications of machine learning to business problems. During my summer internship I worked as a Product Marketing internt at Numenta, which is now launching a product for making predictions for sreams of data. The algorithm they have is based on years of neuroscience research, and it mimics how our brains works.
For this class I have an idea in consumer internet - a Netflix for bathroom/kitchen. It is a subscription based service to deliver supplies for bathroom and kitchen when they are needed. I hate myself to squeeze the last drops of toothpaste or shampoo from a tube. So I would be happy to subscribe for a service that would send the necessary supplies on the basis of feedback about the rate of consumption.
|Laurent Gorseemail@example.com||MBA2 GSB||Looking for passionate and talented teammates:|
1) Developer: while I can code, we'll work much faster with an experienced software developer on board. Less bugs, better algorithms, will mean that we'll be more efficient. I'll expect to be working with you in tandem on the basic app version, but will follow your lead on executive decisions to implement the proper workflows. You will effectively be the CTO!
2) designer: beauty = simplicity. Creativity grows from difference. I welcome anyone who is deeply creative; we'll have to integrate your creativity in a fast turnaround process and you'll have to be flexible to how user behavior determines our aesthetic choices.
3) Marketing manager: you don't think about marketing after you launch, you think about it before you launch. Then you develop strategies to reach customers, you test them, you iterate and you built a new set of strategies. This is probably the most high-pressure part of the team. I envy you!
|Building a recommendation app (web and mobile) that provides ratings based on your circle of trust. |
CONCEPT: Instead of looking at aggregates of the crowd's reviews (like Yelp or Tripadvisor), users choose friends they trust on different topics (food, movies, doctors, etc.) and search for what they want based on those recommendations. It's called influencer search, it's the biggest nut to crack in social network monetization and we are going to crack it.
BUSINESS: Yelp's recommendation system is pithy but not relevant on an individual basis. Facebook is relevant to me on an individual basis but the data it provides is too complex. We bring these two together to provide value to users (find out what the people you trust think about the world) and advertisers (develop a concise tool to know what people like, target them based on what they search, esp. on mobile).
ABOUT ME: 10 years of media experience as an independent producer and in online media. Launched an app on Android and iPhone that allows remote cafeteria orders at the Stanford GSB. I'm looking to build a lasting project that combines creativity, real value to the world, and a lot of hard work. I built an Android app that allows GSB students to order food at our cafeteria online - and can code in Java, PHP, and Ruby/Rails.
WHAT I EXPECT OUT OF MY TEAM AND THIS CLASS: I expect to have a working beta product (i..e a website) by the middle of winter quarter. I want the team to be cross-functional from the beginning, see what I'm looking for in the cell to the left. I expect to keep iterating and improving the concept in spring quarter and am hoping to find teammates who (at least partially) are enthused by the idea of launching a startup right after school.
NEXT STEPS: contact me! I would be delighted to talk to you about the project.
|Ke Guofirstname.lastname@example.org||MS&E||Look for teammates with CS background or passion to music, even better with some experiences/networks in the music industry||Currently a 1st year MS&E student and an amateur musician with enthusiasm in music producing.
