We've developed a new responsive website and app called Shuttle which aggregates networking events around the UK, targeting specific vertical sectors.
We've started with the commercial property sector, together with our partners who have extensive connections and backgrounds in this sector. There is clearly a gap in the market for Shuttle: networking on the move, to enable businesspeople within an industry group to grow and increase their network, creating opportunities in business, wherever they are and whenever they want. Currently, those seeking to increase their contact database have to trawl hundreds of websites, and we've created something simple and intuitive that uses LinkedIn profiles to deliver this solution.
The algorithms we've built behind the scenes are complex, yet the interface is simple: provide a platform with a list of events, lectures, networking opportunities and conferences that relate to a person’s chosen industry group. We've also built in geo-location to find events in the vicinity of the user, recommending an event, and how to go there. Users can also book and pay through the website with participating events. we've also built a clever LinkedIn element, so the user can see who else is attending.
Launched at MIPM
We launched Shuttle on the 10th March 2015 at MIPM, a property and construction exhibition event in Cannes which hosts over 10,000 professionals from across the World.
Shuttle will also incorporate advertising opportunities for industry specific partners, and whilst it is UK based only at the moment, we will be looking to expand this globally over the next 2 years, and move into other sectors and industries as part of this growth expansion.
