    Come to this event ready to GIVE just as much as you GET.  

    Our event structure allows attendees to briefly introduce themselves and share what they are looking for. 

    As you hear each other state their needs during introductions, think how you could help other attendees.   Then, reach out to these individuals during general networking time, just the same as others will reach out to you with ways they can help.  

    The network effect of all attendees helping each other, magnifies the total reach and increases the chances of finding what you are looking for.


    SPACE IS LIMITED.  

    You must purchase a ticket to attend.

    THE STARTUP MATCHUP FORMAT: 

    1) The Startup Matchup event starts with each attendee giving a quick 30 second introduction to the group, providing your: 

    • Name and title, 

    • Company you work for, 

    • What your company does, 

    • What you are looking for or need.  

    For example, persons might have a need for a technical cofounder, or need advice regarding how best to set-up a crowd funding campaign, or a referral to a reasonably priced startup lawyer, or a Cassandra noSQL database developer, or referrals to a good social marketing consultant...etc.

    2) As you listen to each attendee's introductions, take note and think about the needs each have and whether you could help.  Each chair will have a stack of blank business cards and a pen.  During the general networking session, seek out individuals that you could help and if appropriate write down information on the blank business cards and exchange info.  This is a good ice-breaker and reason to start a conversation.  

    As you seek out individuals to potentially provide help, you in-turn will be sought out and engaged with by others willing to help you. This is part of the GIVE and GET relationship that produces valuable connections and a quality networking event for all.
