Event description

Description

Ever wonder how dating sites built a marketplace from scratch? What can we learn from the online dating industry when it comes to building an online marketplace?

Join Boston HAE for networking and an engaging discussion of dating sites by Professor Scott Kominers of Harvard Business School.

Professor Kominers will discuss the design of online dating sites and explore broader questions related to marketplace businesses. The presentation will be taught "case-lecture" style with substantial audience participation. Come prepared with your impressions of dating sites, both good and bad!

The event will take place at 7:30pm in the first-floor conference room at One Main Street, Cambridge in Kendall Square. Food and drinks will be provided, and friends and family are welcome!
