As an innovation community we ascribe to a set of unwritten rules and norms that lower transaction costs and empower our culture. This software is important to our success, locally and beyond. It enables the assimilation of our startup ecoysystem members seamlessly into Silicon Valley and other high performing ecosystems, which have similar cultural norms and unwritten rules.
