You will check in by texting to our special event phone number when you arrive. Then networking matches will be texted to you throughout the 8 rounds of the event.

    Our promise:  Within an hour, a room of strangers will turn into a room of familiar faces.

    Don’t be fooled. This isn't your typical speed-anything. There are no musical chairs and no awkwardness. We'll be using a text messaging system that will make intros for you - like the world's greatest party host!

    When you arrive, plan to check in via SMS (so have your phone charged and ready). You’ll get a text telling you who to meet next, and where in the room to meet them.  6 minutes later, you'll get another text. Repeat.

    We'll be kicking off the meetings at 6pm.  At the end of the event, you’ll get an email with a digest of all the folks you met, including name, bio and email address.

    This is a totally new way to network and it’s a lot of fun.  So come with a fully charged cell phone (that can accept text messages) and an open mind!

    How to opt-out: Text “OUT” to quit or take a break.

    How to opt-in during the event: Text “IN” to jump back in on the next round.
