I like meeting people in person. Why should I look for business contacts online?
Meeting people on manetch doesn’t mean that you can’t meet them in person. We just make it much easier for you to find the right peer to spend time with. Almost everyone knows the following situation at business conferences: For days, you constantly talk with people during coffee breaks, business lunches or evening receptions looking for the right person who can help you with your current problem. Often you meet them just before you leave. However, valuable business contacts don’t have to be a coincidence. With manetch, everything gets much easier. The matching list shows you only members with compatible interests and priorities. You can individually search for people who have knowledge of an individual topic. They are all willing to exchange experience, ideas, and solutions. They are from all over the world, people you probably would never have the chance to meet. You can easily contact them in order to arrange phone calls or meetings. And, of course, you can meet them in person e.g. at a conference or for a business lunch. But then, you will already have some information about them and know that they are worth your time investment. Because your time is valuable.
