Most Common Questions – Virtual Conference:
How does virtual conference work?
UNMET Conferences has partnered a mobile matchmaking platform that helps investors and founders to network remotely. This platform enables investors and founders to meet inside of public or privately hosted networks. Using a mobile platform, founders can create short-form video pitches that are like Instagram Stories to give a brief pitch of their company.
What is a Network? Who is Eligible to Join?
Networks are groups of investors organized around angel groups, venture funds, events, accelerators, entrepreneurship support organizations. Pitch view access to networks can be public or private, and followers can be restricted to open, approval required, or invite-only.
The UNMET Network is an invite-only private network for accepted presenting companies and pre-registered investors. Only those individuals will receive invitations to join the conference platform.
Is there a plenary session? Does all the meetings have to occur on the same day(s)?
This is unlike a typical virtual conference. The virtual conference does not have a plenary session nor do the one-on-one meetings have to happen on a particular day. The meetings are set up based on investors outreach to companies via the platform. Investors have until conference end date to access companies pitch materials and make that initial outreach to founders on the platform.
