What Letslunchers say about Ralph(5)
I like Ralph a lot. He's an evolutionary biologist from North Carolina who moved to the Valley in January to help his start-up, CardVine get off the ground. CardVine starts with the premise that business cards suck. They're tiny, they're static, they get lost, and they usually get tossed in a box at the office. Ralph is building a virtual business card that is really easy to give out, using your smartphone. Ralph runs a one-man company, and his goal is to launch soon and see how much traction he can get in the next couple months. I really enjoyed our discussion, and look forward to lunching with Ralph again.
Ralph has a very interesting background in bioinformatics - super smart guy who has moved into doing a startup in the identity presentation space.
Ralph is a higher education veteran who is doing interesting things with vine cards. I'm really looking forward to see the product success once it goes public.
