Speed Networking:

Speed Networking is an excellent way of meeting more people, making more contacts, and generating more business ideas in a short time. The event will allow attendees to quickly introduce themselves and pitch their company/idea to other people and make valuable contacts.


Speed Networking Format:

· The hall will have big circles with chairs facing each other.

· The pair get 1 minute each to pitch.

· After the 2 minute exchange the person in the inner circle will switch to the next seat on their right.

· The people in outer circle remain seated.

· This will go on till everyone in circle A has met everyone in circle B

· Thereafter the circles will split, and you will have a chance to go into a different circle or network amongst themselves.

· Finally we will have some free time for networking.



Who can you expect to meet?

· Entrepreneurs and Startups

· Developers and tech geeks in healthcare

· Venture Capitalists

· Doctors, Clinicians and healthcare providers

· Service Providers

· People from Health 2.0 con and other Health 2.0 chapters




· Be punctual. If you miss the formation of groups you may not get a chance to network.

· Prepare your pitch

· 1 minute is a short time so get to the point and exchange business cards. You can always find interesting people during the free networking time.

· Prepare some key questions you may want to ask like:

o Can you introduce me to anyone who can help?

o Who do you know that might need our services?

o Who has a similar client base and might like to exchange client leads with us?

o How might each we do business with one another? Etc.

· Bring along loads of business cards

· Enjoy and have fun!
