Tools for Social Impact

As part of our mission to support social enterprise, rise offers a number of tools to social enterprises and conference organizers in the social enterprise sector

Through our workshops and programs, we offer educational tools to social entrepreneurs in low-income countries. Now, we are excited to be able to offer the use of exclusive scheduling software to conference organizers who would like to facilitate in person or online meetings and networking opportunities to conference attendees.

Matchmaking Platform for Social Impact

Are you an event planner or conference organizer specializing in social enterprise or community-based small business development? If so, rise can help you with access to our specialized scheduling software.

rise’s co-founder, BOND Events, specializes in organizing global B2B matchmaking events and 1-to-1 meetings for businesses and individuals working in the architecture and design industries. As the pioneer in the field, BOND developed an online matchmaking platform that produces pre-scheduled meetings for all event attendees using a specialized algorithm.

BOND has given rise proprietary rights to the software for use at conferences in the social enterprise sector

How can our matchmaking platform help your conference?

The platform enables attendees to select whom they would like to meet in order of priority and compiles personalized meeting schedules. The majority of your conference participants are there to network, but it is often hard to arrange meetings that are mutually convenient. By using our platform, time and effort to schedule 1-on-1 meetings are significantly reduced so more event time can be spent networking and conducting business.

How does our platform work?

As soon as an attendee registers for your event, they are provided with a unique login password. They then complete a company profile. Once the registration period closes and profiles have been created, attendees are encouraged to log onto the platform, review the profiles of other participants and submit meeting requests. The platform algorithm then creates and compiles meeting schedules. All participants will receive their personalized meeting schedule via email in advance of your conference
