Important
Venture Day Minsk is the right Conference for expanding your network. Even if it is organized online it provides you with a great opportunity to make connections with the right people. The Conference will be organized at Deal Room platform. That means you can surf through all the registered profiles, pick up any person and connect him / her right away. We are here to give you a piece of advice how to make it more productive:

(a) prepare your short and attractive intro in 2 sentences which you will pitch starting a meeting / room
(b) prepare 1-2 specific questions to the person you connect to in order to show that you have a specific interest to a particular person
(c) resume your conversation for both of you
(d) ask how it is convenient for a contact person to continue communication. Let him/her select the most suitable source.
