They say you should never mix work and play, but BeLinked is for those who want to do exactly that. It seeks to exploit the relatively untapped dating potential of business networking platform Linkedin, offering you matches from within your wider circle of contacts on that service.
There are two big advantages with this approach. One is the potential to find good matches and the other is security. Shared professional interests seem like as good a basis for getting on as any. On the security side, you are dealing largely with a pool of people who you know or can verify very easily so the risk of being approached by fake or undesirable people is much reduced.
How many times have you had romantic thoughts about a colleague, business partner or someone you have met at a conference, yet this can be the hardest environment in which to make your feelings known. BeLinked could solve this problem by giving you a dating platform that interacts with the business connections you make in your professional life.
It makes a lot of sense to pursue people in a similar profession. Chances are that you may have shared experiences and interests. Yet the professional veneer that we wear while on the job often prevents us from romantic thoughts or actions during the 9to5. BeLinked looks like it has the potential to solve a real problem here and we think it could be one to watch…
