Sorin Matei’s Startups

Following a story on the Chronicle of Higher Education Wired Campus Blog I’ve run into YouNoodle.com a social networking site for entrepreneurs and educators. Lots of mashups and some interesting applications. The site still needs some improvement and the communication tools improved, but it seems to be quite popular. 

The intro says:

We provide business competition, event, networking and mailing list functionality for real-world groups that support startup communities. For investors, we’re building technology to help inform their decisions.
