Elegantl.ly enables designers pick startups to join as founders

My friend and colleague Chirag Mehta introduced Elegant.ly to me while we were discussing websites that elegantly integrate your LinkedIn profile with their web site.

You can log into www.elegant.ly using your LinkedIn profile.


Once you login using your LinkedIn credentials you see your profile information from LinkedIn displayed in a form. All you need to do is edit where needed and save the application. 



Once you create your profile, you see a list of potential founders and their ideas. 


You can click on one idea and go to the details page. I have displayed one such page below. Since you are logged in with Linked In, you can instantly see the people you and the potential founder know in common. 


Elegant.ly has turned the talent acquisition model upside down. Instead of startup companies posting their jobs in the market and designers applying for those jobs, startups pitch their idea and designers pick the startups of their choice.

I hope they succeed in their endeavor.
