CrowdLinker Inc. (www.crowdlinker.com) is a young and innovative Toronto-based startup. We create software solutions that help people and organizations network in disruptive new ways. Our tools introduce them to new business connections and allow them to engage further with their existing ones. Our current MVP app is called EventLink. It shows you the detailed LinkedIn profiles of everyone at an event, all in one view, making it easy for you to find and connect with the right people at events. Currently it works with thousands of events and has great traction so far.
We are aggressively growing our feature set over the coming months. Our new tools will allow individuals and organizations to aggressively grow their number of business connections (sales leads, followers, event attendees, potential recruits etc.) by using unique use of social media APIs and other original techniques.
