A networking drink can be quite overwhelming. There are so many people walking around and you only have a limited amount of time to talk to people. What if you could see who is interesting to you and who isn't, before you get stuck in a lengthy and aimless conversation?

Networking drinks are a permanent part of the job description for most entrepreneurs. You simply cannot conquer the world alone and projects only get better by talking about them with other people. It is precisely by speaking to someone with a different expertise that it becomes possible to gain insights from a different perspective and field.

There are so many people walking around and it is impossible to tell from their clothes alone whether someone has knowledge of a subject that you would like to know more about at that moment.

With the LiNK app it is possible to see where people with certain LinkedIn characteristics are and who is currently in your immediate vicinity. That saves a lot of time, makes it easier to connect (in real life and on LinkedIn) and makes conversations useful more often! Not only will you find people who are interesting to you more quickly, you will also be found more quickly by people who find you interesting.

Of course, GPS would never work properly if you are indoors. That is why this app uses iBeacons to determine where people are in the room. By working with iBeacons it is possible to map exactly where who is standing up to half a meter away. Furthermore, the application uses your LinkedIn account, so you only have to give the application access to your profile.

From Us and iBeacons

At Van Ons we are also constantly working on new technologies and so are the iBeacon technology. This year, in collaboration with Sound and Vision, we made an iBeacon case for the queue at the Top 2000 café. Read more about this case here.
