A matchmaking event (also called Brokerage event) is a quick and easy way to meet potential cooperation partners. People meet and greet at high speed. 20-30 minutes are usually enough to build connections. This matchmaking event will be virtual which mean that you will have your meetings online instead of on-site. 

How do I connect to my virtual meetings?

  1. Login to your profile 
  2. Click on "Meetings" on the top
  3. Click on the green button saying "Meeting starts in ..."

In respect to your potential future business partner be in time for your meetings!

You do not need any additional software for the meetings, only an up-to-date web browser (ideally Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome), a microphone and preferably a webcam.

You can find a short video about how to connect to your meetings here or read here.
