JabberYak Launches an Introvert-Friendly Networking App

ConnectNOW - the networking icebreaker

JabberYak, a startup based in Scottsdale, has launched a new social networking app called ConnectNOW. This app allows people attending the same events, conferences, or workplaces to connect with each other based on shared interests. This app's goal is to facilitate engagement, interaction, and relationships between participants who share common interests, but may not be comfortable in a dynamic social environment due to their introversion. With ConnectNOW, individuals can easily find and connect with others who share similar passions, helping to enhance their overall experience and enjoyment of the event or workplace.

“We are striving to create the most comprehensive event engagement and networking solution in the market. ConnectNOW is an addition to JabberYak’s integrated icebreaker products for events, meetings, and the workplace,”

- outlines JabberYak’s CEO, Shideh Doerr.

“JabberYak’s ConnectNOW offers a fun way for event participants or company employees to see others in real-time who have the same interests as they do. Whether individuals are skiers, beach bums, football fans, foodies, axe throwers, or Piston fans like me, they can find others who share the same passions.”

JabberYak's ConnectNOW app is based on the concept of the 7 Degrees of Interest. The patented technology offers users personalized interest templates, such as sports interests, hobbies, food interests, and art interests. Using these templates, participants can connect with others who share their interests, making it easier for them to interact, engage, and form relationships. By utilizing these interests, JabberYak has developed event-specific icebreakers that enable participants to network with each other more effectively. This integrated solution is designed to enhance the overall experience of attendees at events, conferences, and workplaces.

In the post-pandemic world, with the rise of remote work and hybrid work models, many people find it challenging to connect with their colleagues or network at work events. JabberYak's ConnectNOW app addresses this challenge by providing a messaging feature that enables users to reach out to each other directly or through group chat forums. This messaging feature allows individuals to share information and plan group activities, helping them to build meaningful relationships.
