Startup events have became hugely popular. Startups go to events because they wish to get feedback, to find a team and to find investments. However, when they are finally in front of the audience to pitch their great ideas, most of them fail to meet their goal.
As the events are packed with people it is hard to get feedback and to meet right people. This makes attracting great ideas, talented team members and investment difficult. Interaction tools enable startups to gather real time feedback and support to back their idea. Startups can become much more proactive and can be much easier to find with a little help from technology.
Here are 4 simple ideas how event managers can do this with an audience interaction and networking event app Worksup, while at the same time, making their events more engaging and exciting also for the audience.
1) Real-time questions from the audience
With an event app Worksup you can send questions and see most upvoted questions to learn what interested the audience the most. Based on relevant questions, speaker can go into more detail and get people excited about the idea.
