If your profile is not a fit your attendance will be cancelled.

How the online event works

    You can immediately fill in your networking profile on Conversation Starter where you share who you would like to meet (requests) and the expertise you can share (offers).

  • A day or two before the event there will be another email inviting you to browse the requests and offers and send meeting requests. Please mind that you have a limited amount of time slots so research the participants thoroughly beforehand. Consider the time limitation also when you send and accept requests. You can also set yourself as unavailable in your Conversation Starter agenda in case you can only join part of the event.
  • When an invitation to meet is accepted, Conversation Starter finds the ideal time slot to meet.
  • During the event, Conversation Starter provides built-in 12-minute video calls through their intuitive platform. There will be a short break between each call. You will have access to the participants and their contact details through the web app after the event. You can also take notes and save them in your Conversation Starter profile.
