Networking without thinking meets eHarmony for business at DC-based startup TappedIn. In short, they pre-screen attendees at an event that they think you need to meet, allowing you to talk to the right people instead of random people.
Here’s how it works: Their pre-social application platform seamlessly integrates with EventBrite, where questions are inserted into the registration process. A semantic matching engine then matches the needs of people attending networking events. Relevant information about each person is compiled, and attendees are sent a matched list a few days before the event.
Founders Dahyu Patel and Zainab Zaki network a lot, and they knew there had to be a better, more efficient, and stress-free way to meet the right people the first time. Thus TappedIn was born in January.
If you’re coming to our Tech Cocktail DC Summer Mixer on Thursday night, stop by and meet the team – TappedIn is one of our showcased startups.
