Sometimes some of the best ideas for business come about when there is a merger or crossover of sorts – when an idea that works in one area is applied to something entirely unrelated. And in a way our Startup of The Week this week is doing just that.
Woobiz is applying the technology used in online dating sites and using it instead for traditional business networking.
The concept behind Woobiz is fairly straightforward – “business dating” – it is all about bringing like minded business people together and helping people find a business partner as opposed to their soul mate!
With Woobiz you create a profile which is added to the profile database which is comprised of business people from all across the UK, who are interested in all types of business ideas.
You can search for a suitable business partner from the database using all types of criteria, from geographic location through to business type or skillset and then when you find an “interesting” match, send them a message and start talking. If you both get on and want to develop your business partnership, Woobiz helps you arrange real life meetups to help turn those business dreams into reality.
Of course, just as you can search for your next business partner, being on the database yourself means that others are searching and may find you. Woobiz is not only linking you up with people whose skills you want, but also helping you connect with people who could use your skills.
Business networking like this will surely then help many more business ventures get off the ground . So if you are interested in finding the right person for your idea or startup, then why not check out Woobiz here.
Woobiz have plans in place to pitch for funding via Crowdcube early in the New Year. Check out the Woobiz pitch video below and don’t forget to offer your support when the pitch goes live!
