At Shhmooze we LOVE attending events of all sizes to meet people and learn new things.
But like many people, we hate networking. It's hard work. It's exhausting. It's scary. And most of us are rubbish at it.
But who you know and who knows about you really matters in business (especially on the start-up scene!).
So we put our passion for events and fear of networking into the creation of Shhmooze.
Result? A nifty app that does the hard work of networking for you! Shhmooze scans the social networks important to you to identify who's there and who's who. And we help you connect to the people you want to meet.
Because we believe your life is busy enough without more bells and whistles adding to the noise, we've kept Shhmooze lean.
We show you what's on where, and who's there. Everything you need to know about your event is in Shhmooze, and no more.
Shhmooze is smart. But we're going to get a lot smarter. As we are used at more events by more people, our knowledge grows. This means we can help you make better connections even faster.
And that's our sole focus. Helping great conversations happen face-to-face at every event, everywhere you go.
