Let’s be honest, sometimes networking events can be unpleasant at its best. The small talk, the cheap drinks, the awkward moment when you can’t remember someone’s name and they are very offended…
We network to make the right connections, it’s part of getting business done to find the right person to collaborate. Why does one have to meet so many people before meeting the one for your business?
Miami-based PROsimity wants to help you cut through the business cards, by connecting professionals during and after events based on common interests. The app allows users to login with their LinkedIn account, and it automatically connects them with professionals they previously met or were in same events. Users choose which professionals they want to network with by swiping. If the other feels the same way, an introduction is made.
“The app was created for conferences, networking events, and trade shows, but is also designed to help users “discover” their next great opportunity while sitting at the coffee shop,” explains the cofounder Riccardo Pisano.
With so many apps in the market geared to making business networking experience more efficient, like CardMunch, Planely and WhosHere to name some; PROsimity relies on the Tider-like experience for users.
“The two professionals can then exchange digital business cards, send messages, connect via LinkedIn, and begin to build a real relationship,” says Pisano.
PROsimity is still in BETA are releasing the iOS version this week App limited to Miami and Fort Lauderdale region.
