Current professional networking platforms:
lack the ability to visualize a person’s true network due to the encouragement of non-verified connections
-have a hyperfocus on the corporate professional – overlooking a huge market for the non-corporate professional who still benefit from successful networking
-fail to create silos of information, content, and posts so that each person has a unique and enjoyable experience without being bombarded with unnecessary information
are full of spam
-created an infrastructure that doesn’t offer the ability for a person to actually grow their network in a sustainable and useful way.
In other words, current professional networking platforms are disorganized, impersonal, corporate, and fundamentally counterproductive when it comes to growing a useful network; acting more as a Google for a person’s resume/work history.
We fix that.
Netwrk approaches it’s design and functionality after the authentic way people connect and grow their network.
