May23

You just came to attend an industry events ready to network. In the crowd around you at the event, there are potential co-founders, investors, or a tech guru. But how do you find and meet them?

Well, now there is an app for that Handshake allows you to scan all the people around, zoom in on who you should meet, quickly research their profile before you approach them, and automatically record meetings and exchange cards.

What is it?
Handshake is an app for the business networker, combining the power of a business card with location-sensitive discovery across your social network. Unlike traditional business cards or social networking sites, Handshake lets you present your brand powerfully; provides rich context when you meet someone, by showing shared contacts and meeting history; and lets you discover your contacts currently present in your vicinity.

Handshake enables you to stand-out in the crowd and:
• Be discovered as a mentor or start up-CXO,
• Find a co-founder or angel investors,
• Find and catch-up with a contact you have not seen in a while,
• See who that stranger next to you is, and who you know in common,
• Study a person’s profile before you walk up and say hello.
Experience the power of location-based data-driven social discovery!

Enrich your Networking
Handshake allows you to discover relevant people also open to connecting, currently in your location. It enriches your networking by mining your already existing social networks – LinkedIn, Facebook, Google+, as well as to grow your network by discovering more people you should meet and know. Further, the App shows you common contacts, interests and affiliations — to enable you to find bridges to help initiate and further a discussion. You will always have a better context when you meet someone next time.

Please note that the App will display only publically available information.

How it Works
Handshake is a cross-platform app. At conferences, airports, and other crowded locations, it allows you to find people you might wish to meet, and who are also open to networking. Push f a button to get to know more about the person you are meeting, including common social contacts and affiliations (such as company, school, or professional association). Exchange your smart business card with others, automatically record meeting history, and manage your contacts easily across all your devices.

Download the App on Google Playstore or IOS – Just search for Handshake Business Networking
