As the pandemic forces people to stay home, BEAMSTART, an app that introduces people to clients, jobs, and investors, has shot up in popularity.
While the app initially started out as a small community for entrepreneurs, it has now evolved into a global platform for people to connect to opportunities and form valuable connections worldwide.
BEAMSTART spots a simple and familiar user interface, similar to many instant messaging apps in the market.
Upon signing up, users can easily create a professional profile, providing more information about what they’re looking for, what they offer, as well as their industry/background.
Users can then exchange messages with each other and filter through a vast database of professionals by gender, industry, country, skills, and more.
In a tap of a button, BEAMSTART will even make the introduction for them.
Since nationwide shut-downs were announced, BEAMSTART has seen a significant rise of new signups, where over 68% are CEOs and owners of SMEs.
Moving forward, the company aims to develop more tools to drive more revenue for businesses, as well as help match professionals to global opportunities.
