How to host a meaningful braindate?

Braindates are not presentations or demos, they are conversations that stem from a shared interest.

Whether it’s a one-on-one or group braindate, keep the following 5 tips in mind to lead a meaningful braindate for everyone involved:

  1. Make sure everyone introduces themselves and contributes to the discussion.
  2. Ask the participant(s) what interested them about the topic.
  3. Be transparent and honest about your own experience related to the topic: You don’t need to be an expert to lead a braindate.
  4. Don’t forget that everyone has something interesting they can add to the conversation: Adopt a beginner’s mindset.
  5. Don’t forget to share contact information. Many great relationships started with a simple conversation.

A new must when going to conferences!

“Braindate has been a cheat code to big conferences. I was able to connect with potential clients, thought leaders, and founders in a casual, conversational setting. After one day I tried to fill up my calendar the next day with as many Braindates as I could. A new must for myself and teammates going to conferences.”
