About #STO

André Eidskrem, San Francisco

#ShapingtheOdds is a new, professional, peer-to-peer, social networking platform that provides valuable content designed to help entrepreneurs and students from around the world develop professionally and personally.

#ShapingtheOdds bridges a gap that we believe exists between Facebook and LinkedIn. Many people prefer to keep Facebook for family and friends and find it difficult to reach out to peers via LinkedIn.

#ShapingtheOdds is completely free to join and use, and community members buy into the pay-it-forward philosophy of openly sharing help, knowledge, ideas and advice to fellow community members.

#ShapingtheOdds encourages members to share their personal entrepreneurial stories in the form of an article on the website, which we write after conducting an interview, in the belief that we can always learn from each other’s experience.

The #ShapingtheOdds blog section offers members the opportunity to publish content they write about any topic they feel readers could benefit from.

The #ShapingtheOdds community offers a wide range of groups for members to join and participate in and we love it when they create their own groups, which can be open or closed.

#ShapingtheOdds is the brainchild of serial technology entrepreneur André Eidskrem, who having created several successful start-ups since his childhood with some serious ups and downs, knows that entrepreneurship can sometimes be a lonely and challenging path.

Understanding that the fine line between success and failure depends on self-belief, plus the ability to get up quickly after any setbacks and the determination to shape the odds in one’s favor and seize all good opportunities, André realized that there was a need for entrepreneurs to come together to share their knowledge and wisdom in an open and nurturing way. And #ShapingtheOdds was born.
