How to Make Friends and Take in the Tech Conf

Sitar Teli, the Managing Partner of ConnectVentures was a first-time visitor at last year’s Slush and discussed networking and meeting people at events, while admitting to being herself sometimes fearful of a networking situation.

Sitar’s top three tips on networking

  • Be specific about what you want out of the meeting
  • Be open: Talk to as many people as possible, not only the famous ones
  • Preparation! Do your homework in advance and contact people before hand to set up a meeting during the conference

Watch the 4-minute recap of Sitar’s talk below.
