Finally! Here's Hunch Explained

Secrecy in the startup world is no longer relevant as very few ideas are unique and the more feedback you get, the better your product can become, says investor and entrepreneur Chris Dixon.

Dixon, co-founder of recommendation engine Hunch, keeps his edge by investing in other startups, looking through numerous ideas, listening to rumours and giving advice to budding entrepreneurs.

With check-in functionality soon to be a commodity, Hunch has an opportunity to piggy-back off of the real-time trend with their recommendations. And while there are established search engines (Google) and social media sites (Facebook), there are no go-to places on the web for recommendations.

Hunch, which Dixon started with Flickr co-founder Catherina Fake, recently raised $12 million – including $10 million from YouTube CFO.
