When you have a profile on CoVentured, Startups who are in your network can be associated with your profile.
Startups can link their profile to your profile. When they do this, you will be notified.
Before that Startup is seen on your profile, you'll need to approve that they really are a part of your network.
To do this, go to "Edit Profile" on the top righthand corner.
You'll see a tab "Startups". When you select that you'll see a list of Startups who are pending approval.
If you know who the Startup is, you can approve them by selecting approve.
If you don't know who the Startup is. You can decline.
