well then work in its startup. And what we are doing is trying to move the network and process into the 21st century trying to connect people but based on artificial intelligence, so you can start getting like connection based on real interest and backgrounds and everything starts from we're changing the way people like shake hands and introduce themselves since the very moment when you exchange a business card, like something that's going on from the last like 400 years.

So we are changing this like human behavior and it's going to take some time for sure.
