Shapr is the easiest way to build meaningful professional relationships. Swipe for two minutes a day to meet your next business partner, discover new career opportunities, and meet helpful new friends in your city. Conversations started through Shapr have produced job opportunities, mentorship, successful investments and partnerships of all shapes and sizes. HOW IT WORKS Shapr combines your industry, work experience, networking goals, location and up to ten #interests such as #marketing or #UX to curate a daily batch of around 15 relevant professionals in your area. Simply swipe right on the professionals you want to meet. When a match is made, you can message within the app and set up a time to meet IRL over a cup of coffee or an afternoon Skype. This app is ideal for entrepreneurs seeking cofounders and ideas, professionals exploring career changes or building contacts within their industry, people new to a city seeking friends, and anyone who wants to break up their day by meeting or mentoring someone new! WHAT THEY SAY “This is the Shapr of things to come” (The Economist’s 1843 Magazine) “Shapr is repositioning networking as a mindset and an essential professional skill to master, rather than a means to an end.” (Inc.) “Shapr is the most efficient way for busy professionals to build quality career connections.” (Bustle) “Shapr helps users save valuable time, a key for millennials, by allowing them to only pursue connections they know will be valuable.” (Forbes) “I’m rooting for Shapr” (The Wall Street Journal) ______________________________ Shapr is free to download and use for networking.

  • Good app

    By Steve Seymour's Ipod
    Really like the app. People are actually looking to connect. Something that LinkedIn lacks. I would like to see a new feature installed though. It would be cool to be able to see when someone was last active on their account.
  • Great App but....

    By Nathanisthemaster
    Sadly what I have noticed is there isn’t a lot of actual connections that are made. It’s usually “marketers” marketing marketing. It’s very rare you actually find someone looking to work together.
  • Needs a way to filter results for more local suggestions

    By AdamLeidtke
    I signed up for Shapr Plus, and I still end up with about 45 out of 50 results from long distances away. When I search limiting my results to local results, I get many within that criteria. My selected results each day also include a majority that do not have interests in common, whereas my search results more closely fit the parameters I define. Too many of the suggestions sent to me are not relevant to my needs.
  • Not worth it.

    By HeatDB
    Good concept. Too much pressure to buy.
  • Waste of time unless you want to pay $20/mo

    By Akfierce2
    I made a couple matches but couldn’t see who they were or contact them without buying a whole subscription. What’s. Waste of time finding potential connections when you can’t even view them. Deleting now. Super disappointed.
  • App is buggy. Seems like a scam.

    By Kramark_1
    App can be temperamental and buggy. I wouldn’t sign up for an extended subscription. Sign up for just one month. They initially match you with a Shapr representative (like a dating website). I would’ve normally ignored such a match but being they were in the same country as my business and this isn’t a dating app I decided to message them. Less than a day or two after messaging their representative (with a totally legitimate business inquiry/message) they not only ignored my message and unmatched me. LAME! Initial matches were spot on but after a few days I was getting matches that were oil and water! So use caution!!! Don’t sign up for a subscription beyond one month! Subscribe for a month then immediately cancel any automatic renewal until you can determine if this app is right for you.
  • Awesome

    By Sharpitisme
    Super easy to to use
  • Decent

    By reviewer 888888
    It has lots of people looking for good opportunities and you can definitely meet a variety of different people. But you have to pay to see who swiped you and every time I finish swiping a batch of people, the amount of time I have to wait to get more gets longer
  • For the entrepreneur

    By CityGirl307
    Great if you’re an entrepreneur and looking to get exposure / spread the word about your product. If not an entrepreneur, be prepared to get a LOT of pitches on why you should use your match’s services.
  • Excellent Customer Service and So Far, an Excellent Customer Exoerience
