BRELLA - THE EVENT NETWORKING & MATCHMAKING APP
Here is a step-by-step guide to help you maximize your networking at FinovateAfrica with the Brella app.
Once you’ve registered, you’ll gain access to event app and networking platform, Brella. Take a look at your fellow attendees and think about who you’d like to meet.
Note you must be a registered attendee to take advantage of these opportunities. If you’re not already registered, click here.
Set up your profile in Brella, and let the matchmaking algorithm recommend people to connect with. The more complete your profile is, the more helpful the tool will be.
Reach out to other attendees through Brella, and start a conversation. Brella helps you schedule meetings before, during and after the conference. It's also easy to politely decline meeting requests that aren’t interesting to you. There's also a dedicated space for meetings set up through Brella if you want to make use of it.
After the event, follow up with your connections. If there's anyone you weren’t able to meet on site, you can still use Brella to connect with them. You'll also receive contact information for every presenting company, making it easy to connect with the innovators who caught your eye.
PLAN YOUR SCHEDULE
There will be hours of networking time built into the FinovateAfrica agenda. Please take advantage of the Brella app to schedule your meetings prior to the event. If you have any questions, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
IT'S NOT ONLY GREAT FOR NETWORKING
You've also got the agenda, list of sponsors and floor map of the event at the touch of a button.
I was able to gain 10 leads from Brella meetings. Brella is the best networking tool I’ve ever used.
Brella made networking at Finovate much easier and more efficient. Rather than having to spend lots of time trying to track down people I wanted to talk to , I could simply invite other attendees to schedule a brief meeting to connect.
Our company has invested a lot of money that I can come here, so I need to be able to show my director who I met. Because of Brella, I can go back to our office and show a list of people I met and who I had a good 15 minutes conversation with. I'm expecting to close 2-3 deals from these meetings.
