Founder Showcase: Nick Smoot of Here On Biz
I wanted to introduce Nick Smoot to our audience today. With his last startup acquired just 8 month after launch, he has founded yet another startup, called Here On Biz. An app made for LinkedIn. Something Nick likes to call “Instant Business Networking”, a fast way to locate and network other professionals traveling on business.
What would I personally use it for? Let’s say I have an upcoming trip to NYC. The first thing I do, is shift through all my Linked In connections in NYC, and figure out who I can meet with. I visit alot of entrepreneurs and other CEO’s. Then I have about 100 emails of back and forth “available this time, what about that time”. With this app, I can figure that out in less than a minute.
Or…let’s say I’m at an event. Like a conference. I can set my app to show when I’ll be there, where I’ll be, and I’m open to networking there. All from my iphone.
What Nick needs help with: Testing, feedback, and rating his app. He’s moving fast. He needs real influencers, travelers, & business professionals to help try this thing out. So if you’re a networker, get out there, lend Nick a hand, and give it a whirl. You won’t be disappointed.
