‘Have I mingled with anyone relevant to me today? Is there anyone important at today’s event I missed connecting with? Who is in this workspace that Aptlink can give me a quick Bio to start a conversation?’

‘Aptlink app is your new networking partner that tells you who is who, who does what, who needs what when you’re at Events and Co-working spaces. Aptlink app arms you with instant Bios, Skills and Goals of the people around you to start a conversation, make important connections and sell your talents, ideas or Startup. Whether it’s at Events, Co-working Spaces or Business Lounges, Aptlink is your efficient Wing-Person to help with your scaling, new clients, employment, collaboration, mentor or investor objectives. Or just use it to make new friends.’

‘Why only immediate local connections? How many people have you connected with online that you will never meet because of distance? How many times have you braved a networking event and left not knowing anyone? How many times have you wished you had a Bio of someone at the event to strike up a conversation to explore the connection further. Aptlink focuses on people you can actually meet in real life and people important to your goals.’

‘Professional Events? Co-working Spaces? Business Lounges? You can also discover all these near you increasing your chances of meeting likeminded people.’

How does it work? You create your profile, so that’s your pic, bio, current goals and skills you have and of the people you want to meet. Anyone relevant to you that you have mingled with will show up on your timeline. When the interest is mutual you can start messaging directly within Aptlink app. In the discovery tab you can see a list of events and co-working spaces near you. If you attend the event or workspace and checkin, it will show on your profile and when you connect with someone you will know how and when you met. This gives really great context to your interaction.

At the moment we are starting conversions with additional potential key or first hires with the intention of bringing them on board if they share the same vision as Aptlink and have complimentary skills to the existing team. You are only expected to commit full-time once we get fully funded. We need someone who will help us get to product market fit and critical mass within the first year.

Admirable Skills/ Experience/Knowledge around these areas
CMO: User acquisition strategies, previous growth hacking experience ideally for an app or user centric business, social media marketing and management, SEO, publicity, guerrilla marketing, user engagement and retention and press releases etc.

Comp: 0.5-7.5%

Salaries will kick in once seed funded.

Vast industry experience is a bonus, but what we mainly look for spirit of hustling and dedication to making Aptlink a success.

If you think the Aptlink is something you can add value to and want to be involved, get in touch and we can a have a quick call and maybe grab a coffee!
