Conscious dating network
So Libes and Eldridge decided to shift their focus and build a network that matches impact investors with fellow investors as well as deals.
In January, they launched Investorflow, which does just that.
It’s not easy for tech startups to land investments, but it’s a fairly standard playbook, with local funding sources buoyed by central tech hubs in places like San Francisco and New York.

Marcia Powell...founder discusses her own Scientology beliefs...offers a number of choices of religion, including "Conscious/Spiritual" and "Scientology." ...(Jill Crosby) bio on the website of the Conscious Dating Network, which she founded (and of which Affinity Exchange appears to be a part) says, "she has a very deep, telepathic connection with dolphins."The first thing that I did after leaving Sea Org was a visit to a dating service owned by Scientologists (former Sea Org members understand the drive behind this trip). We, the men, were playing some stupid games with the girls who did not want to have sex with us. It's hard to imagine any other reason someone would join a message board to post a single reply to a five year old thread (unless you're a dolphin f***er)..
Using a semi-automated process on the backend, the site matches like-minded investors and sets them up with deals that meet their preferences.
There’s no Silicon Valley for impact investors, and it’s something that Seattle-area startup and nonprofit veterans Luni Libes and Matt Eldridge learned when they tried to start a seed fund investing in companies that wanted to make the world a better place.
