Proximitii: A location based networking feature for LinkedIn
Created by Marcellous Hazzard.
I'm a Designer in Phoenix, AZ. I'm currently freelancing.
A networking feature for LinkedIn that uses your location to search for other people with specific skills and needed resources everywhere you go; as long as each individual are online.
As an entrepreneur it’s hard finding people to build a team. Networking is the solution, but it’s tedious.
Make networking more efficient by giving people the tool to discover others with the solution to their problems and the resources to their ideas.
To give the entrepreneur like me, who lack resources to move forward the vision to see resources everywhere they go.
We all attend events like this to share our ideas and hope we land the right connection; to find that person who has the skills or resources we need to move forward.
But the people we need aren't only at these events. They're everywhere! Whether you're at the coffee shop or the airport someone is/has what you're looking for, vice versa.
A team that's willing to share ideas and enjoy the experience.
Have a testable beta.
Gather information/suggestions from users and fix bugs.
Have sufficient data and testimonials.
