We recently met with a well-known VC who offered the following observation (I am paraphrasing):
At its core, Facebook is pure entertainment.
It helps people waste time and feel important â€“ and that’s good. However, we believe that there is an opportunity for a company that does the exact opposite of Facebook. Instead of helping a community of people waste time and be entertained, this service would help them get work done and accomplish productive things. The potential market is enormous.
This is exactly the vision we have for my company, Workstreamer.
