Entrepreneur, Investor and Founder of Lions Not Sheep is launching a groundbreaking app he developed this spring. Aimed at becoming the anti-LinkedIn, where users have bloated connection lists that they will never leverage, Meetrz will offer networking in the real world, real time with other users nearby.
Whalen and Meetrz aim to be the villains of social media.
“Meetrz is like that rogue wild child that breaks all the rules. I want to punch social media right in the face. All social media apps have these algorithms trying to connect you to ‘like minded’ people. They are robotic. They are slow. Meetrz is instantaneous, organic and real vs. a computer telling you who to like or network with. This is a complete revolution in how human beings do business,” explains Whalen.
When business networking is truly about meeting new people and not just a trick to get a quick sale, it becomes a lifestyle. Meeting new and motivating people, in the real world, on a regular basis is the key to a more meaningful, fulfilling, healthy existence.
Meetrz flips the script on the bloated profiles on all other social media networks. First, Meetrz only has one small profile picture. Then just 3 other piece of information: ‘What you do’, ‘What you like to do’ and ‘What you are looking for’.
The idea came to Whalen when he realized that most business owners have experienced a random occurrence where they meet someone that turns out to be a very valuable business connection. He created Meetrz to create those random occurrences on demand.
“Let’s say an entrepreneur is in LAX, and has four hours before their flight leaves. Entrepreneurs and business leaders don’t want downtime. They want to constantly network and grow. So they can flip on Meetrz and see who is live and wants to meet right now. You see no other users. This is about instant, in person connections, real time connections and what Meetrz shows you is who is ready to meet right here, right now,” said Whalen.
