SureToMeet is a technology company with decades of experience in the events and one-to-one marketing fields. We have married those two areas of expertise in a new product design — but due to the death of our founding CEO, are struggling to find a new home for this innovative system that can make a real difference in the business networking niche.
SureToMeet includes three innovative, experienced R&D designers: Chris Allen is an Academy Award winning systems programmer and designer. Carolyn Allen is a longtime marketing communications and Internet marketer. David Hylton is an international communications and business strategist.
Our founder, Cliff Allen, was a systems designer and marketer who wrote some of the early books on Internet marketing, who created one of the first event registration systems as well as a sales and marketing unification system much like Salesforce.com.
Together we have designed, patented, and put together the implementation plan for the MatchUp system. MatchUp is a complete system for event organizers, attendees and sponsors to bring together compatible people face-to-face at events.
It takes humility to know when you need to ask for help. After struggling for almost five years to complete the patent application process and receive the patent, and developing the business plan, marketing strategy and detailed technology wireframe — we realize that the system we’ve designed needs a bigger company than ours to bring it to the marketplace.
So we are looking for a home for our child. The ideal candidate will be an established events management or events services company who has a relationship with event organizers and sponsors. They will also have in-house tech resources to rapidly develop the system.
Why would they do this? Because the revenue potential is even greater than the valuable contribution they would be able to provide their clients by cutting the cost and inefficiencies of networking the old fashioned way. This system provides a smooth pathway to development of both a Minimum Viable Product and future enhancements. And the adopting company will have three dedicated founders to help with rapid development and implementation.
We have heart — as well as the desire to make a valuable contribution to business and the careers of people who rely on business networking. In this day and age of social media and crowd sourcing, we are asking for your help so we can help others. We would appreciate any assistance you can provide in finding a home for this innovative solution to business networking.
