It allows introductions between people to be made at scale. Using game mechanics and financial rewards Ponder motivates everyone to play matchmaker for friends and strangers alike. Our vision is to be the go to place for meeting new people in all contexts where trust is critical – dating, recruiting, business partnerships, roommates, babysitting etc.Ponder is needed because introductions change lives. Everybody can trace a shift in the direction of their lives based on an introduction – to a spouse, a job, a business partner, a friend. These high impact introductions however are limited in number and hard to find. Nobody has created a way for making quality introductions at scale.Our first target is dating/matrimony, a market with a clear problem and no good solution.Online dating doesn’t work well with less than 1 in 4 online daters finding a relationship,42% of women reporting harassment, and a huge signal to noise ratio. Ponder builds upon the time-tested art of romantic matchmaking, making it a fun game with financial rewards for skilled matchmakers. By motivating people to invest thought and social capital into who would make a good couple, online trust and alignment problems are resolved. For singles, Ponder becomes the most effective way to meet a trusted partner, selected by friends, family, or a community of motivated matchmakers.Ponder has the potential to touch the lives of people worldwide. It helps people with the most important decisions of their lives – who to marry, which job to take, who to partner with in business. As such it has the potential to be a trans-formative global platform.
