Remember Peter Thiel’s fellowship program that awards 20 people under 20 years old $100,000 each to shun college and pursue a startup idea? Well check out one of the first ideas to come out of this: RadMatter.
Its founder, Dale Stephens, explains that “RadMatter revolutionizes how we develop and demonstrate talent in the 21st century.” Think LinkedIn, but without all of the traditional factors you would use to evaluate a job candidate, like grades, college degrees, and traditional resumes.
RadMatter’s goal is to let people showcase their “talents” rather than their “skills.” I’m excited to see how they do this.
