Introducing FlashSolve: Quick, easy, action-oriented networking


Here’s a shout-out to the “Work Smarter Not Harder” crowd – Do you have a business problem that you wished you could crowdsource some answers for? You might want introductions to the right people, or a growth hack, or just need help getting something done. Or maybe you are a compulsive problem solver who wants to work on interesting problems? You might want to get hired or land a contract or just show off your creativity. Well, we’ve got just the thing and its called FlashSolve.

What’s that? FlashSolve is a T4S branded event that furthers our goal of networking by working. It is a rapid-fire 90 min session featuring 4-5 business leaders that present problems to the audience such as ”We moved to MongoDB and performance sucks” or “We are launching a new product but have never set up a call center before” If audience members have solutions, ideas, or introductions they can share it. E.g. “Fix your schema” or “I know a guy who does call center outsourcing”

Here is how it works:

1) Smart CrowdSourcer take 5 mins to talk about their business problem.
2) FlashSolvers ask questions and provide solutions for 15 mins, and on the to next one
3) Our super-helpful moderators collect all the feedback and email all respondents to a particular problem.
4) That’s it, the connection is made! CrowdSourcers and FlashSolvers can follow up as needed.

The Internet and social networking are changing the way we are interacting with people, whether they are friends, family or working relationships. While the many positive sides of online communication can’t be disputed there are also downsides that can’t be ignored. How can you make a lasting impression and stand out from the competition? LinkedIn is great but its so much better to really connect with professionals by actually working together on problems.

So what can you do to avoid getting lost in the crowd? Well if you are near Orlando you are in luck. On March 16, Talent4Startups is hosting a FlashSolve event where you will have the opportunity to show what you got and participate in a face to face crowdsourcing activities. RSVP here:

Because sometimes in order to connect you have to disconnect.
