The Problem :
What does one need to grow professionally?
1. Go to the right events
2. Meet the right people
Both of which would help you to go to the next level in your career and your life.
Given the shortage of time and attention span, alongwith information overload - how does one achieve that?
The Solution :
Sepalz gives you a 3D X-Ray vision into your network and your surroundings, so you could discover the right events to go to, the best people to meet who could take you to the next level in your career and your life.
And then automagically helps you remember, where you went and who you met - when, where and why!
A highly powerful way to network based on identifty and intent - Sepalz gives you the ability to have different identities & intents for different contexts and events and dynamically change them on the fly. It mirrors our daily lives where you could have multiple identities of having a day-job, be a moonlighting entrepreneur and a volunteer for a charity, and publish whichever identity & intent is relevant depending on the event and the context you are in.
