Braindates: Learn from People Around You at Startupfest

e180 created braindates because of their hard-held belief that all humans possess the power to develop their full potential autonomously, with a little help from their community. They believe that education is a relationship, not an institution, and that a conversation can change someone’s life.

How does this fit with events?
Memorable events are about learning new things and connecting with the right people. Braindates help you meet and share knowledge with great humans around you.

Braindates transform events into peer-learning communities, using both their matchmaking technology and the onsite presence of their professional Matchmakers. Just think—event participants can learn from the people around them as much as (if not more than) from the speakers on stage.

So, What’s a Braindate?
Braindates are one-on-one or group conversations that you book with other participants while you’re at an event. e180’s recommendation algorithm, named Freia, curates an individualized selection of braindate topics for each participant,based on their behaviour and interests.

It’s simple:
1. Explore the knowledge Offer and Requests –where all participants (including you!) post the knowledge they are willing to share.
2. Pick something you want to learn or create your own Offer or Request.
3. Book your braindates and meet in person at the Braindate Lounge!
