Woohoo!! Hitchie made it to the finals and will launch @TheNextWeb Startup Rally 2011 http://tnw.to/17qVt
Founders Carlo and Fabian Markaban about Hitchie: ‘These days there are all sorts of meetups and events. We’ve found out that professionals who are attending these events, often meet with people they already know, like colleagues or known business contacts. What they often don’t do is meeting interesting new people.’
Hitchie connects attendees face to face in an online speed network session before a physical event or meetup starts. While people are familiar with one another the threshold to launch into conversation during these events disappears, which results in more network interaction.
