When Shapr launched in 2015, we quickly rose to prominence as the leading networking app. We were applauded by top journalists at The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Inc, TechCrunch, Fast Company, GQ, Glamour and more for making networking ridiculously easy, efficient and mobile. We had built the go-to app for making connections with professionals, and helped individuals to start conversations around the globe.
What was missing for us was a sense of community. We wanted to add value for our top users by not only offering quality connections, but by also helping them find shared spaces where they could apply the same giving mindset, and connect with a curated group of dynamic, diverse and driven professionals. So in June 2018, we made it our mission to find professionals who shared three things in common:
1. A curious attitude, and a desire to learn about new topics and industries.
2. A giving mindset, and a willingness to help others.
3. A desire to go beyond a business card and build authentic and meaningful relationships.
The minute you step into one of our events, you will be greeted by members who lead with questions rather than business cards. We are a helpful, welcoming and purposeful community. I have witnessed members help one another with investor negotiations, music license agreements, website builds, and even moving apartments! So apply to join our community of connectors, who balance proactivity in their careers with genuine enthusiasm to help you achieve your growth goals.
