Meeting new people in London is difficult. You wouldn't think it: this is a city of 8 million people, after all — abound with potential networking opportunities, and home to world leading industries and budding entrepreneurs alike. Yet, forming meaningful relationships with those around us doesn't seem to be getting any easier. It shouldn't be so difficult, should it? Enter networking app, Shapr, the free app for professional networking. Shapr is your go-to tool for building professional connections and meeting new friends in London.
The app, which is completely free to use, is driven by a smart algorithm that suggests 10-15 relevant professionals per day who are actively networking. Your suggestions are unique to you and carefully selected for their quality, based on your location, self-selected interests and job. If you swipe right on a professional and they'd like to connect with you too, then a match is made and organising that all important coffee is as simple as dropping them a message. Who knows, it could be the start of something big and lead to your next job offer, company, or project — or, of course, it could just be an inspiring and fun conversation with someone new.
Say goodbye to awkward networking, random LinkedIn connections, and business cards. Shapr is all about quality over quantity, and you can be sure that every connection made here is a meaningful one. It's the perfect way to cut through the noise, and build mutually beneficial relationships in both your personal and professional life.
And with being able to network so effortlessly, it's easy to find the time as part of your daily routine. A few minutes spent on the app each day — say, on the train to work —- could be the start of many new (and career-advancing) relationships, and that's more than you can say about your commute at the moment, right?
So here's to that next coffee meeting. With Shapr, it could be an important one.
