In the San Francisco Bay Area, Linx Dating Founder and CEO Amy Andersen is known as “Silicon Valley’s Cupid.” Andersen launched her business in 2003 with the idea to connect the “Silicon Valley man” with the “attractive professional San Francisco woman.” She teaches tech execs from the likes of Apple, Google, Facebook and Salesforce how to date, according to a 2013 Fortune article.

Before launching the luxury matchmaking service, Adler was an executive headhunter at search firm Encore.
