What Makes Our Virtual Events Different?

Targeted Virtual Networking

We make networking more efficient and effective by allowing you to search profiles of attendees who you most want to network with. You can then invite them for a scheduled 10 minute private 1-on-1 or group networking session, for which our system automatically helps with calendar scheduling and private zoom links. Schedule multiple 10 minute networking sessions on your events calendar with targeted people who share your same interests, making networking more comfortable, fun and productive!

Live Video Q&A

Our event features live video Q&A, allowing founders in the audience to create meaningful connections with investor panelists, or ask essential follow-up questions to expert speakers. Having the opportunity to be seen and heard by investors and speakers is very powerful in creating meaningful connections and real dialogue. Our events platform allows audience members to ask their question live during the event with full video and audio.

Access to Speakers

Have access to Silicon Valley venture capitalists, well known founders and experts like never before! No matter what City, State or Country you live in, you will be able to learn, connect and ask questions to some of the best speakers and panelists within the startup ecosystem. Our live events are designed to provide you access to speakers that you normally would not have an opportunity to interact with. Connecting with the right people is crucial in helping to grow your startup or entrepreneurial career.
