The not-so-secret way to get the most out of Introduced

One-on-one meetings with potential clients or mentors? Say no more, fam.

If there’s one thing we (myself and the rest of the team) pride ourselves on, it’s the ability to make connections.

It’s not always easy to go to an event and network and meet the people you really want to meet. (Plus, who actually likes walking up to strangers and saying hi, idk maybe that’s just me.)

For our new one-day, one-location event, Introduced by (happening during Philly Tech Week 2018 presented by Comcast), we’re taking that name literally. Let us ( introduce you (you) to investors, founders and decision-makers so you can leave the event with real, solid connections that may just lead you to future business opportunities.

What better reason do you need to convince your boss (or your bank account) that Introduced is worth the ticket price than the chance to meet with 10+ founders and investors plus big-name companies like Amtrak, Johnson & Johnson and QVC?

Get tickets

So, here’s what you need to do to make this happen:

  • Register for Introduced by before Thursday, April 26. If you register after, you won’t be guaranteed any meetings.
  • Wait for your email from me! That’s where I’ll send you a link to the form to apply, tell us more about your company and select who specifically you’re interested in meeting with.
  • Then, we’ll send the list of applicants to the meeting-takers as they’ll get final say on who they’re interested in meeting with (so make sure to fill out the form with any applicable info that will help get you as many connections as possible).
  • After they finalize their lists, we’ll let you know which meetings are confirmed and the specific timing (each meeting will be 10 minutes long).
  • Then, all you need to do is show up that day with your pitch ready to rock.
  • You also get to enjoy the amazing lineup of speakers happening throughout the day, a demo floor, delicious food and beverages and hundreds of other people for you to meet on your own terms. Wow.

Who can you meet with, you ask?

There will be three sections throughout the day for meetings. Check out the impressive lineup on folks you can get in front of.
