Investing in business cards is a move many are wary of making. While it’s no secret the business world is easier with connections, nobody really knows how affective business cards are at making them. Particularly when every single one of us has 20+ business cards in our wallets and purses that we haven’t looked at since they were handed to us. But what if the business card was more than just a piece of paper with a clever icon, a goofy slogan, and your contact information? What if these handy networking tools were able to start a digital experience with a potential customer? Well, Tactify has done it, and it’s as cool as it sounds.

Dubbed the TappCard, this revolutionary technology could change the game for networkers around the world.

But alas, nothing ever does. This innovation will not only have impacts on the business card wielding world, but also on the networking landscape as a whole. Because if we can bring business cards back, what else is on the horizon for business-savvy social butterflies looking to meet their next investor?
