This new app brings “swiping right” to the world of networking


We’ve all heard the old adage, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” But often, building relationships with the right mix of influential people can be a tough task.

Luckily, Shapr is trailblazing a new way of networking that will build you connections in no time.

With just a few swipes, this new app can help you find the right job, land a great contract, or earn that next big opportunity.

Swiping right on Shapr is a bit like some familiar dating apps, except the matches you make are for strictly professional reasons. (Users with other intentions are blocked from the app).

Start by inputting your experience, interests that align with who you want to meet, and then start swiping!

Each day, Shapr’s powerful algorithm finds 10-15 of the best potential contacts for your goals.

When you match, you can message your new connection to find some time for a call or coffee and see where a conversation can take you.

The Best Part… It’s All Free!

We are on our phones non-stop so why not leverage them for your career?

In less than 5 minutes you can look through your daily Shapr batch, reply to your new matches, and continue with your day, all without making a single purchase.

Have an idea that will change the world, but need to find that perfect co-founder to set sail with? You can begin your search while sipping your morning coffee.

This Could Be You:

Reu-el Fleary-Griffiths was frustrated after her car broke down and servicing it took hours to sort out. She envisioned Patcher, an app that is essentially Uber for mechanics.

Reu-el started using Shapr for informal research over coffees with potential users of her service, and then ended up matching with Sam Kullar, a marketer and backend designer who came onboard as her co-founder.

“Sam is one of the best people I’ve met. I cannot say enough good things about him” says Reu-el. “I would never have met him without Shapr, so I’m grateful to the app for that.”

Building a network makes us stronger and meeting new people can open doors to opportunities we would have never imagined. It’s so simple to try out Shapr, why wait to give it a go?
