As the saying goes, it’s not what you know, but who you know - and a startup called Namesake plans to capitalize on that mentality by providing a social network that gives users a way to seek and promote job opportunities through the people they know - all in under 200 characters.

Namesake is exactly what many early start ups need. My biggest problem right now is finding people I know who have the skill set that I need. This is much harder than I anticipated, and I have been dreaming of a service that helps me find people easier. As TechCrunch puts it, Namesake is the Match.com for professional opportunities.

This service could really take off if they target universities where there is a lot of talent looking for ideas and a lot of ideas looking for talent.
