From Google to Apple to Lyft to Github, Silicon Valley is known for its juggernaut tech companies and innovative start-ups, so much so that there’s even a popular TV show named after it. Founded by Amy in 2003, Linx, for short, is a curated matchmaking service for those busy, high-profile single professionals in Silicon Valley and the surrounding Bay Area (as well as all over the world) who haven’t been able to find the relationship they want.Silicon Valley is also known for the passionate, hardworking, creative, and dedicated people who work at these businesses — all of which lends well to a successful career but not necessarily a successful dating life. Today, the company is known as “Silicon Valley’s Matchmaker” and Amy its “Cupid.” Amy recently told us about the “aha moment” that started it all, her client-to-client vetting process, the algorithm-less, intuition-based matchmaking, and the personal relationships she builds with the people she helps.This is where Amy gets to know the person, hear their personal story, and find out what they’re looking for in a partner (and what they’re not looking for).
