Launched in 2015, Shapr is a professional networking app designed to help individuals meet, share knowledge and build meaningful relationships.
Download the free app, add some information to your profile and you’ll be shown 10-15 relevant profiles from other users each day, who are based in your local area, with shared professional interests and similar past work experience, or future career plans. If you’re interested in connecting with someone, swipe to ‘Meet’ them and if they have done the same, you’ll be able to message each other. The intention is to take the online connection offline, by meeting in person or speaking on the phone.
Taken from Shapr’s LinkedIn page: “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.”
