What is Cohort?
Cohort helps you find the people you need through the people you already know and trust.
How does it work?
Cohort is a social graph of 2.15 billion relationships, sourced from public data. When you use Cohort for the first time, you authenticate with Twitter, and Cohort suggests people that you might know well enough to ask a favour of.
This is your Cohort of trusted relationships. Just 45 people could give you access to tens of thousands of relationships. You can use Cohort to search this network for access to things you need - skills, expertise, experience or influence.
Cohort makes it easy to ask for introductions to people who can help, through people who are motivated to help you.
Who is it for?
Anybody who wants to network better.
Why is this a thing?
Because relationships are more important than contacts. Because networking is more about helping people, and less about generating leads. Because there isn’t a place where I can understand the potential of my friend-of-friend professional network, or the social capital I’ve built up over my career.

How Cohort works.
Getting started is easy. You sign in with Twitter, we suggest people you know well enough to ask a favor of, and you build your Cohort of trusted relationships.
From there you can search for the things you need help with, or specific people you're looking to meet. Cohort makes helpful suggestions along the way, so you can refine your search.
Cohort suggests people you have in common, helping you find the people you need through the people you already know and trust.
