Lead Candy is one of the most revolutionary ways to get connections with entrepreneurs, marketers, developers, co-founders and partners today. It bridges the distance between your social media accounts and has all your connections in one portal. You can search the platform for any type of professional you want to link to and get in touch with them in a minute. When you search for a developer on the platform, for example, what happens is that you get several results and whichever name you choose depending on your location and their location, the Lead Candy tool analyzes your social media connections and theirs as well. It will come up with someone you know that knows someone who knows the developer you are interested in. Lead Candy searches your social media accounts including Facebook, Twitter[9], LinkedIn and Google Plus to find someone whom you and the partner you are interested in know in common. That common person between both of you will then be contacted to connect both of you. A very solid way of making sure you know who you know and how in order to make a solid interaction when you meet them. Definitely good enough to find your co-founder.
