Last night Arrington had a humorous post about a missed connection at the TechCrunch 9 party. Rob and I had the same thought the moment we saw it – “If only they had EventVue!”
Missed connections happen all the time. In fact, you usually do not even know about the opportunities you miss. Perhaps someone that represents a valuable opportunity for you is attending the same event. How would you ever know they were going to be there? The way we currently network at events is random, thin, and incomplete.
Think about the last conference you attended. When you arrived, you had no idea who else would be attending with you. You randomly wandered the conference floor, hoping to stumble into someone interesting to you. Afterwards, you have nothing but a huge stack of business cards and your memory to help you follow up.
Arrington’s right. There is a huge need for better networking tool around events. We can’t wait to show you EventVue.
