This Tinder for Entrepreneurs Lets Users Pay It Forward with Right Swipes

This networking app is a Tinder for budding professionals that functions similarly to the dating app by allowing two people to "swipe right" in order to accept and begin a conversation. While one algorithm is set up so that chats can only begin when both people have accepted, there is another that enables users to chat with people who haven't necessarily wanted to chat with them. This unique system is where the app gets its name, 'PIF' or 'Pay it Forward.'

The pay it forward system was designed so that for every unsolicited conversation a user accepts, they get to start one with someone else. This is great for young professionals in the start-up world who want to connect with more experienced contacts -- individuals who may not initially see the inherent value in speaking with them. By being set up this way, this Tinder for entrepreneurs gives users control over how many "unsolicited chats" they have the potential to engage in.
