SF 🐠s, just in time for summer, my co-founder and I just launched a new IRL Social App called Venty (www.helloventy.com). We are still in beta, but would love for our 🐠 fam to check out our app and give me feedback. Venty is an IRL social app that makes it easy to find people nearby to enjoy social activities. No swiping needed. You create activities you want to do and users nearby send you requests to join. Not sure what you want to do? You can browse activities created by users nearby and send a request to join

Had a few job offers on the table from CPG and Tech (non-FAANG) companies for Senior Analyst type roles.

Without negotiating it seems like Tech pays more, is that true? Or can I still negotiate more with CPG companies?

Hi 👋. Q for gym goers. I paid for 2-month gym membership which renews monthly and 30 days notice is reqd to cancel. However the gym closed because of restrictions in the last 2 weeks of my membership. In general, how does it work- do i have the right to cancel without 30 days notice given the situation and can I complete the remaining 2 weeks of my membership once the gym reopens without paying extra? Let's say I do not wish to suspend my membership.
