Description

Shapr is the easiest way to build meaningful professional relationships. Swipe for two minutes a day to meet your next business partner, discover new career opportunities, and meet helpful new friends in your city. Conversations started through Shapr have produced job opportunities, mentorship, successful investments and partnerships of all shapes and sizes. HOW IT WORKS Shapr combines your industry, work experience, networking goals, location and up to ten #interests such as #marketing or #UX to curate a daily batch of around 15 relevant professionals in your area. Simply swipe right on the professionals you want to meet. When a match is made, you can message within the app and set up a time to meet IRL over a cup of coffee or an afternoon Skype. This app is ideal for entrepreneurs seeking cofounders and ideas, professionals exploring career changes or building contacts within their industry, people new to a city seeking friends, and anyone who wants to break up their day by meeting or mentoring someone new! WHAT THEY SAY “This is the Shapr of things to come” (The Economist’s 1843 Magazine) “Shapr is repositioning networking as a mindset and an essential professional skill to master, rather than a means to an end.” (Inc.) “Shapr is the most efficient way for busy professionals to build quality career connections.” (Bustle) “Shapr helps users save valuable time, a key for millennials, by allowing them to only pursue connections they know will be valuable.” (Forbes) “I’m rooting for Shapr” (The Wall Street Journal) ______________________________ Shapr is free to download and use for networking. And now with Shapr Pro, you can: - Filter profiles using several criteria: job titles, goals, interests and location - See the full list of people who swiped you right - Update your location manually to set up meetings in other cities before you travel Shapr Pro is an optional auto-renewable subscription of 1, 6 or 12 months.

    Interesting method to network. It’s definitely gotten me to look into areas I may have held off on. Still learning, but it seems like a fun, new way to connect with people, local and far, that you may not have ever known about.
  • Buggy Issues

    I want to like this app but everyday I use it some type of issue occurs. From not being able to swipe, to pop up boxes that you cannot close, or screens getting stuck, it is starting to be a frustrating experience.
  • Improve please

    This app is not well thought of. Maybe because it’s starting out now. I wouldnt make it paid so quick. Building networks is all about having many users. But they make it paid after a few swipes which weren’t even relevant profiles. Definitely disappointed
  • Free version lost its mojo

    If you’re interested in this concept be ready to pay for the premium version because the free version is lacking at best. On the free version you occasionally find someone mildly interesting but most of the potential connections are looking to sell you something. I’m presuming Shapr runs an algorithm that weeds out the people you actually want to meet to get you to pay for the app so you can meet the people you do. This wasn’t always the case. In fact, I was an early user and met many great people. Now I’m lucky if I find a match worth following up with once every few weeks. I blindly hope they improve the algorithm for the free version but they probably won’t and I’ll likely stop using it.
  • Could be better

    The basic version is ok. Would be nice if they connected you with people in your area that shared the same interests. Right now it looks like I either get people in my area or that share my interests, but not both. Also, maybe show us those that share the most interests first and then lesser connections.
  • Awesome app

    The concept is promising but there is always a challenge with keeping up with the conversation. I guess it will be a great help if they turned the app into a messenger like app ie WhatsApp Also a a major missing feature is the desktop app!!
  • Good idea. Bad layout.

    The app is supposed to pair professionals together to increase networking potential, which is a great idea. However, the app does not have more specific tags to pair only specific professionals within their own field. As a result, your matches to people outside your network and mostly with sales related contacts. Lastly, all your “free swipes” are filled with randomly assigned meets, which makes the overall experience feel like an dating app versus a medium for professionals to create connections within their professional community.
