When startups are seeking help by means of intros or social shares, you will simply just have to tap on the request to take action.

#help will be a request from the startup for you to send an intro email for them. Instead of having to request specific information from the startup on what they need, just by simplifying tapping on the request, you will be redirected to your email with a pre-written message that the startup has already completed for you to send out.

#share will allow you to share exciting news from the startup to your social media channels. Just by clicking the request, you will be redirected to your social channels allowing for you to quickly post to your network.
