Garms shares how he and his business partner both have deep backgrounds in tech recruiting and they noticed how, in their opinions, LinkedIn started to decline in value. They wanted an internal tool for their boutique tech recruiting and consulting business so they created humanpredictions.

They use these communities to build profiles using this public data.
