If you work at a start-up (or are an investor with deep pockets), you undoubtedly get dozens of business cards every time you enter a room. If you’re like me, you go home, skim through the ones that pique your interest and file them. The rest get either put in a drawer that I dub “The Black Hole” or the recycling bin.
In the spirit of honesty, I’m not a VC but I did have fun masquerading as one at a recent conference called BioFinance and got some interesting cards. But if you’re a road-warrior, lugging your card album with you is a pain. Some people have nifty (read: pricey) card scanners, and keep a collection on their laptops/Flickr, but a new startup called CloudContacts offers a service to scan the cards for you, and upload them into the “cloud”.
