Shapr is the easiest way to build meaningful professional relationships. Swipe for two minutes a day to meet your next business partner, discover new career opportunities, and meet helpful new friends in your city. Conversations started through Shapr have produced job opportunities, mentorship, successful investments and partnerships of all shapes and sizes.

HOW IT WORKS
Shapr combines your industry, work experience, networking goals, location and up to ten #interests such as #marketing or #UX to curate a daily batch of around 15 relevant professionals in your area. Simply swipe right on the professionals you want to meet. When a match is made, you can message within the app and set up a time to meet IRL over a cup of coffee or an afternoon Skype.

This app is ideal for entrepreneurs seeking cofounders and ideas, professionals exploring career changes or building contacts within their industry, people new to a city seeking friends, and anyone who wants to break up their day by meeting or mentoring someone new!

More then I dreamed of!!

This app is full of people looking for all sorts of networking connections. And the great part is you never know if you are going to find a mentor, a peer or a potential investor that will hire you and work with you! So many great connections for the digital networking world! It’s a great approach to networking on demand. My ONLY desire is that i wish there was a web page so i could type on a keyboard my responses instead of my phone. I don’t want to quickly transfer the convo out of the app and I’m sure y’all don’t want that either bc churn is bad. Other than that, i just have a slight pet peeve that pop ups about a “new message” from a different person pops up while I’m replying to another and it’s just bothersome and unnecessary. If i am already in the app I’m going to check for any new messages before i leave it, plus the badge icon with numbers of unopened messages can tell you if you have new messages. Other than that keep it up! This is way more personable than LinkedIn as a relationship builder and I love that! The timer for limiting connections a day is GREAT and truly does what it’s intended to do! Hopefully i have other great updates from my connections soon!

Fun, better than LinkedIn for targeted, rapid-fire networking

I’ve made a few connections that look like they will be definitely turn out to be interesting and informative if not altogether productive. (We’re still booking the appointments - haven’t actually sat down over coffee with any of these folks yet.

Agree with other reviewers who groused about the inability to “swipe” back. Once or twice I accidentally swiped the wrong way (you get muscle memory from all the ones you reject), once or twice I had a second thought after rejecting. Also it would be nice to see the profiles i approved and at awaiting approval from the other side. There were one or two of those who (I think) would be really compelling connections, might like to try to find them on twitter or linked in. Would also be cool to be able to message people who didn’t swipe you back.

Experience probably based on area.

I have been using Shapr for two months now and it has been a strange experience to say the least. Most of the profiles that I see in a day are incomprehensible. Sometimes I’m pretty sure I’m viewing fake profiles (when I see the same profile back to back with the same interests and same weirdly worded bio but with different names and different pics). I also get the impression that some profiles are fake because there are no links and a bio cuts off mid-word as though the folks at Shapr have been pulling data from LinkedIn.

I am in Memphis, TN and most days there isn’t any Memphis resident whose profile I can check out. Usually I’m seeing Georgia or Chicago or somewhere in Canada. If the primary purpose was to actually meet people beyond the internet, that’s not helpful to me. I need to see my community first and then increasingly further out.

I also don’t understand the logic of matching either. Maybe some days there just aren’t enough profiles to match my key words against, but there are many days where most of the profiles I’m given have no matching interests at all.

I’ve matched with several folks in the past month. Most aren’t anywhere close to me. So it makes it very hard to get myself to use the app on a daily basis when it’s clear that my likelihood of interacting with someone in person is in the single digits.
