“BUILDING CONNECTIONS WITH PEOPLE WHO TRULY WANT TO HELP US”
Sidekix is the ultimate urban navigation app for walking, the best way to explore a city on foot. It has been selected to Mass Challenge Accelerator Program based in London during summer 2015.
Jenny Drezin, founder & CEO of Sidekix, traveled to London to attend the Accelerator Program and thus prepare their UK launch. We’ve been introduced, as she needed to build strong connections and partnerships with students, lifestyle bloggers and media.
A SCREENING PERSONALIZED PROCESS THAT SAVES TIME
Valentine has got in touch with a new ecosystem she has not met with before: Media & Bloggers. She has implemented VV process in order to identify most relevant connections in that field, got in touch with Bloggers Communities (ie: French communities) and picked Lifestyle events. For instance, Le Bonbon was organizing a London launch party which Valentine has attended and few days later, she has met with their UK manager to discuss partnerships options with Sidekix.
Valentine was screening first all the potential relevant partners of Sidekix and shared that selection with Jenny for validation. Then, she organized personalized meetings in cosy London places, providing a warm atmosphere to foster trust & further collaboration.
And what was so helpful about her services is that she screened people beforehand, so we only met with people who were already interested in us and what we do. And when she talks about “Authentic”, she means that she finds people who truly wants to help you.
So it saves you a lot of time, a lot of efforts and I never would have met those contacts if it weren’t for Valentine’s services.
