What if I get too many requests?

Let us know at, we can help with our Sohi managed service offering.

Why is Sohi all in English?

Sohi is meant to connect you to the world but it’s only in English! We are just in our early days and hope to change that and expand to other languages in the future.

Can I have two profiles?

Yes. But you need to create them from unique email addresses. We’d recommend creating profiles if you have two roles in the start-up sector - i.e. if you work in a start-up, and also investing in start-ups you may wish to create two different videos.

Who is Sohi for?

People who are 16 years old or over.

Who can register a profile on the site?

Any person working in, or interested in, start-up businesses/ charities/ social enterprises or providing services or support to start-up businesses.

I’ve asked to talk to someone and they haven’t replied. What should I do?

Some of our Sohi users may find they get a lot of requests. If you don’t get a reply then they might be busy, or they might not be able to talk with you and it’s important that you respect that. You can try asking someone else.

Make sure you write a clear explanation of what you want to talk about, and tell them which of their tags interests you.

How do I make my video?

You can:

  • Record your video on by using our built-in filming technology (video tips available on your ‘my video’ page).
  • You can upload your own video that you’ve precorded off Sohi.
  • Come to a Sohi event/ host a Sohi event and record your video there (email to register your interest).

How can I filter my search?

Search by multiple tags to filter your search. For advanced searches you can include: country, language, gender, age bracket (16-2​5​, 2​6-35, 3​6-45, 46-55, 56-65, 66-75, 76-85…).

What behaviour is not acceptable on Sohi?

What should I do if I find content which is inappropriate or offensive?

How do I know if someone is qualified to give me advice?

How do you manage my privacy?

We collect as little information as we need to make Sohi great! We make your tags and video public and we let you choose what you share in those.
