Elevator pitch

We live in the world of social networking. Ten years ago when the first ones appeared was exciting to browse around and meet new people online. Nowadays we are full of social networks where it is hard to find anything specific. Therefore we decided to create a social network for women only divided by occupation and location. easy to find the specialist one needs in every city around the world.

Competition

Facebook, Linkedin-too much noise and hard to find people according to their location, not useful for organising events and gathering people from the same location.Takes hours to find who does what and what is their job occupation.Internations-already divided by location and occupation but still a mixture of males and females where business is hard to make,mainly organising club events or free time events. not business oriented.Females from closed societies cannot attend.

Add comment

as it is still a new platform all our mentors and city coordinators are volunteers and we still cannot add them to work full time for our platform. All software and other work has been outsourced.
