A unique networking platform which provides business owners with the chance to click, connect and collaborate 24 hours a day has officially opened for business.
Network 24/7 was the brain child of South Yorkshire entrepreneur Ednan Karim after recognising many business owners were unable to attend face-to-face networking events.Following a successful trial period which saw more than 100 business owners from across the region test the platform, the platform is set to be rolled out across the UK and plans are already underway to introduce a number of new features including the opportunity to host virtual group sessions and private events through the platform.
One of the most significant changes to the platform is that membership to Network24/7 is now completely free of charge. In addition to creating an environment where business owners can meet each other at any time of the day, Network 24/7 also plans to host regular virtual networking sessions, enabling thousands of like-minded people to come together from the comfort of their own office.
Network 24/7 has received the backing of three Chambers of Commerce in South Yorkshire and founder Ednan Karim believes the platform could be a game-changer:
“Over the past few months we have tested the technology to its limit and the support we’ve received from local business owners who helped us by providing feedback have played a key role in helping to shape the future of the platform.
“We’ve redeveloped a number of key features, but perhaps the most significant change has been to move from a subscription based model. This means any business can register to use the platform completely free of charge. This is just the beginning for Network 24/7 and we are already working behind the scenes to introduce additional new features in the future.”
