What it is: An app to network with nearby professionals.
What it does: Each day the Shapr app curates 12-20 professionals based off of the users’ profiles, creating networking matches similar to a “business dating” app. Matches only occur based on mutual interest; there are no unsolicited requests. Once matched, users can chat immediately or set up a phone call, bringing tricky networking introductions into a simple and open format. Shapr reviews the users’ previous matches to find smarter matches based on tagged interests, location and professional experience. With the newest update, Shapr allows entire companies to create profiles and match with other companies and individual users.
Who it’s for: All business professionals who want to grow their business through enhanced networking.
Why kitchen and bath designers need it: For designers, whether in business for several years or just starting out, networking is key. Establishing contacts with a wide network of allied professionals can make the difference between a good year and a great year.
