The best thing my dad taught me: Lori Cheek, Cheekd

My father always told me a kid, “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know” and that statement has proven so true after all these years…. One of the most fruitful tools in building my business over the past eight years is in the power of networking and taking every advantage possible to meet new people; Efficiently communicating and never dismissing a single soul – you never know who you’re talking to, who they might know or how they’d be able to contribute. The real life connections I’ve made while growing my startup have been the major fuel for our business’s growth.

Lori Cheek is a NYC based architect turned entrepreneur, Founder and CEO of Cheekd – a hyper speed Bluetooth mobile dating app that removes the “missed” from “missed connections.” After working in architecture, furniture and design for 15 years, Lori came up with an idea that led her into the NYC world of technology and dating. Shecompletely threw away her design career and is no longer building structures, she’s now building relationships. Lori, a Shark Tank Veteran, was recently listed as “The Digital Dating Disruptor” and “One of the Top 10 CEOs to Watch.”
