Current cold-outreach methods to secure conversations with Business Influencers are disruptive, inefficient and unwanted.
We envision a future where Business Influencers take back control and manage the process in a way that ensures conversations are aligned, efficient, and impactful. Conversations are founded on mutual value, shared transparency, and respect for everyone’s time. We serve good-hearted professionals who are seeking mutually beneficial connections.
Our mission is to revolutionize the way cold-outreach business conversations are secured by empowering business leaders with automated control over the management of unsolicited requests. We aim to empower relevant Meeting Requesters to cut through the noise and be recognized and heard. Additionally, we strive to transfer the financial investment of business development efforts into social and community impact.
Influence Board will be the catalyst to change cold-outreach from an unrelenting and unwanted hammer into a mutually beneficial Win-Win-Win for all the stakeholders.
