Meeting with other business professionals who also want to expand their network has never been easier, writes Taylor Soper in GeekWire. Startup company Weave has created Concierge, an app that automates your networking.
By submitting your LinkedIn profile and the types of people you want to network with, Concierge will match you with one person a week. The app then arranges for you and your match to get coffee. Automated networking functions without any interaction from you, explains Brian Ma, Weave’s co-founder. This removes the stress organizations feel when trying to reach out to others and make contacts. Concierge connects professionals who can benefit from talking with each other but just need help finding new colleagues.
