The importance of networking in business is usually not understated, however it can be a daunting task -- particularly for Millennials just starting out in their careers. The app Shapr was created to alleviate some of the stress associated with networking, by pairing subscribers with like-minded individuals with the same goals.
Using a platform that is similar in format to Tinder – an app that many Millennials are familiar with – Shapr connects users by allowing them to tag interests, their location, and their professional experience. It suggests 10 to 15 profiles a day, which users can swipe "yes" or "no" on anonymously, and then speak to the people they match with.
Shapr encourages networking professionals to meet up in person, and connect over their mutual interests and professional goals.
