How do you replicate the magic of speed networking on the internet?  Well you can’t really. So, @ 8.1 we’ve come up with our own version which remains true to the ethos that you can “drop in whenever you want”.

Zoom Networking will be offered in two formats, one where the user can click on the profile picture of the people / companies of interest and another where they can simply play a 20 minute carousel of video profiles.

See you @ 8.1 this Spring!
