If there’s one thing that everyone could benefit from, it would be networking and getting to meet new people. With the rise of digital communication, it’s harder than ever to find a reason to new meet people in person.
I read an article a while back, called “How to Network Like a Spy”, and it’s no surprise they’re some of the best in the business. Why couldn’t networking be as fun as being a spy?
I created Mission, a cross platform mobile and desktop application that allows users to get a 'taste' of being a real spy, and reap all the networking benefits that come with it.
Whenever someone else who has this app is near you, you will receive a call. In this call, you'll be told that you need to obtain some specific piece of information from that person, usually their birthday, occupation, or something similar. In the course of obtaining this information, their attempts inevitably leads to conversation, and hopefully a new connection.
By gamifying the experience, networking is far less stressful, and users are far more willing to participate. Mission will kickstart people into taking their connections and networking into their own hands.
There's no end to the benefits of expanding our social reach, and Mission helps you get there!
