Chicago, IL, United States, 2008/09/26 - On Friday, September 26, Chicago will convene an Innovation Conversation hosted by the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce, InnovateNow and WIRED Magazine.
In a partnership with AllWorld Network and the Chamber, Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) Stuart School of Business will give participants the opportunity to experience the future of business networking. Participants will have an opportunity to experiment with GrowthCluster, an AllWorld Network technology, to help them expand their network in real time. AllWorld Network is developing GrowthCluster with two Stuart School of Business students, Vaibhav Bhargava and Shreya Matt.
Innovation Conversation registrants fill out five-question Growth Profiles in advance, from which they can be matched with organizations that are looking for their capabilities and competencies before the Conversation even begins. On September 26th, participants will experience the future - they will know who to meet before they get there. By the end of the year, companies will have the opportunity to create a full Growth Profile to network them nationally and internationally at GrowthCluster.com/.
“GrowthCluster is a Web 2.0 platform being created to help small and medium enterprises find their future business partners at a conference or at the other end of the globe, and at the click of a button!” says Stuart’s Vaibhav Bhargava. “What excites me is working with AllWorld Network to engage Chambers of Commerce in the U.S. and internationally so that we can link together their member companies.”
"GrowthCluster is a technology that will show emerging companies a whole new world of business opportunities and partnerships,” adds fellow student Shreya Matt. “Helping the AllWorld team build GrowthCluster gave me a chance to combine my prior IT experience and skills from my MBA program. Being part of a global start up that will redefine the way enterprises create networks is very exciting.”
