XYZ is a large tech summit that attracts budding entrepreneurs and Venture Capitalists looking for businesses to invest in. Owing to the prominence of the event, it also attracted media personnel, industry experts, students who'd like to know more about the world of business, and corporate employees looking for insights in the startup domain.
There are hundreds of people present at the summit, and a VC interacting with every single business or startup, along with the others looking to network with them would be tedious and unrealistic. The biggest pain point from the perspective of an attendee at the event is knowing which of your interactions would yield favorable results in terms of making contact with the relevant people.
Having prior information of the people present at the event would greatly make meeting relevant people easier for attendees. Exchanging contact details in person after having interacted with fellow attendees also proves to be an inconvenience as it takes away from the time that could otherwise be spent interacting with a larger number of people.
Ohai is a networking app that offers dynamic live discovery. At the XYZ event, people with the Ohai app would be able to access a dynamic list of everyone else at the venue with the app via their live feed, and get preliminary information about the people based on their professional background.
To make things a lot easier, they can set their 'shoutout' to what exactly they're looking for. Based on their backgrounds and shoutout, our algorithm would match them with people they might be specifically interested in.
In addition, using 'Seen Around Me', the users would get a full list of everyone present at the event after they've left, and they can proceed to get in touch with them later on. This also provides an elegant solution to the problem of exchanging contact details with those you interacted with at the venue.
Ohai users need to set their backgrounds and shoutout correctly to get match, and find users of relevance. They need to have a means to get online for the peer-to-peer discovery to work.
The event organizer gets in touch with Ohai to power the event to understand deliverables and specific goals Ohai sets up a Closed Circle, for which the organizer is the admin. The organizer can add members who have registered to the circle using their e-mail, giving them a means to communicate with everyone at once in real time.
Ohai sets up a geo-fenced circle around the event location. Anyone with the app who arrives within the circle gets a push notification and gets informed of the interactive circle, and of the event.
At the event, attendees instantly reap the benefits of live discovery and get connected with relevant people around them for instant networking and active engagement with the organizer/sponsors.
The people stand to gain the most out of the Ohai experience, with their ease of networking and online as well as offline communication being made easier thanks to Ohai.
The event organizer gets benefitted as the response from the event is made exponentially better due to highly effective networking and attendee satisfaction VCs looking to fund businesses successfully get in touch with the specific kinds of startups they were looking for and find the highly relevant 'needle in the haystack' startup.
Businesses that want to increase their professional network acquire numerous valuable contacts, leading to a high event ROI. Relevant professionals may discover the event via the push notification, attend and witness and cover the vibrant engagement in the custom circle for the event, and also set their own shoutouts as they see fit.
Youngsters and students who wanted to know more about the industry can go through the dynamic roster of people at the event, and based on the specific area of business they'd like to know more about, interact with the relevant people accordingly. People who attended the event to gain insights about an industry can set a shoutout for that and get connected with experts in the field who can provide them with the necessary knowhow and details.
Industry experts can gain loyal followers as a result of the interactions they've had with various people at the event using Ohai.
