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.
