For years, the speed dating concept was used to stimulate people to meet new people with one purpose: matchmaking. We believe in a different way to explore this concept: encouraging startups to meet investors and agencies at SXSW 2017. Rather than a panel where we would talk to an audience, we’re going to invite the audience to try a networking experience which we call Start2Meet. In a room, we’re going to make a layout, always placing two chairs in front of each other. In one line of chairs, only startups and independent developers. In the other, investors and agencies. There'll be three minutes chats rounds until everyone has met. At the end, we’re going to ask people to share their impressions.
