Pokemon Go is a thing. We’ve spent the last week hearing all about it. We all (kind of) get it. Many of us are still playing it. We should probably move on. Although, one positive thing about Pokemon Go is that it gets people outside.
So while you’re all out there catching Pokemon, in your own world… take a minute to look up. You’re likely to see others playing the game- people like you- business professionals from neighboring companies. While Pokemon Go may lead you to walk streets you don’t usually walk on to catch your next rare guy- Pikachu, Charmander, Staryu- if you pay attention you’re also likely to see a number of company doors and signs littering the streets.
These were just a few names I came across while scouring around San Mateo (home of Owler’s HQ office) at lunch today, while (un)obliviously playing Pokemon Go. So after lunch, I took to Owler’s Advanced Search to answer this question:
Are you aware of the businesses and startups in your neighborhood?
