Grip, the company which created the world’s first artificial intelligence (AI) event networking solution, today announces that swipes on the app’s fun and addictive interface have reached one million.
Taking the world by storm
Grip’s smart event matchmaking app, recently used at the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity attended by over 9,000 delegates and London’s Infosecurity trade show, has taken the events world by storm since launching in April 2015.
On the app’s simple but highly intuitive interface, a user is presented with recommended people to meet based on Grip’s AI powered matchmaking engine. Users can then anonymously ‘swipe right’ if they are interested in the recommendation or ‘swipe left’ to skip the profile. When both parties ‘swipe right’ a handshake is established and the in-app chat can then be used to message and meet in person at the event.
London-based Grip can announce that the one million swipes on the ground-breaking event app has also resulted in 35,000 handshakes and that there are now 20,000 users in selected countries around the world. At the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity, the app quickly climbed to number 2 in the list of Top New Business Apps on the Google Play store as news of its unique networking power spread. Grip’s mission for the future of networking at events is for each attendee to meet the ten most relevant people in the room – and then go on to collaborate and even do business together.
