BUSINESSWEEK - Mar 7 - On Memorial Day weekend, a plane will land in SF filled with single New York City women who are looking to find love. A startup called The Dating Ring is aiming to raise $50K to solve what it sees as a demographic dilemma: “There are tons more single women in NYC, and tons more single men in SF,” reads the company’s campaign on crowdfunding site, Crowdtilt. For $20, NYC women could win a free flight to SF. Donations of $1,250 guarantee the full package: a flight to SF, housing for four nights, three dates, two parties, and three private 30-minute matchmaking and date-coaching sessions via Skype. Bay Area bachelors can pay $20 to attend the party, or $100 for a ticket to the more refined cocktail party.
