Mumbai: Understanding the ever-evolving ecosystem globally, Mumbai-based Company, Blue Tie Global Private Limited today launched their professional networking application, Blue Tie for Android and iOS devices. The new-age professional networking platform aims to give users the power to discover and access the right professionals beyond their individual network. It gives networking a much-needed modern twist, making it simpler and effective for today’s working individuals.
Founded by the brother duo, Kalyan Garud, the Founder of La-Tigid and Kunal Garud, the Former CEO of Shrooms Creatives – an advertising agency, BlueTie aims to solve the ever-pertaining challenge for professionals to connect, network and collaborate in today’s ‘connected’ age. The founders realized that the available networking tools in the market only allow one to build and manage their respective individual networks and restricts users to search for solutions to their problems within their own limited scope, which may sometimes exist beyond it.
Mr. Kunal Garud, Founder & CEO – BlueTie, said, “In this time of Digitisation, there is pretty much nothing that effective networking cannot resolve. But we also firmly believe that an objective-driven approach is a key to a definite result, and if you do not approach a person with a complementary objective, there are negligible scopes of constructive networking. This is where BlueTie percolates by helping our users find people who share common or correlated synergies, thereby making networking a win-win situation.”
Mr. Kalyan Garud, Founder & Executive Director – BlueTie, said, “There is a thin line that differentiates networking from network building. BlueTie was conceptualized to address this very difference. Our philosophy is simple – to complement the speed at which you are growing today, you need to create professional relationships based on mutual synergies at that point in time. Simply adding people to your contact list does not serve any purpose.”
This networking application allows the users to search for professionals or get searched by them, for a particular skill set, software proficiency or professional certification. The Advanced Search feature comes with smart filters that help one narrow down search based on age and gender. The micro to macro based filter allows one to find professionals within a small and specific location or within an entire city. Taking their interest, response and fulfillment into consideration, users can acknowledge reach outs by other professionals or get their reach outs acknowledged within a pre-set time frame through their ‘Effortless Acknowledgement System’.
As a part of its Launch, the brand organized an exclusive contest – ‘Test to Win’, that gives the users the opportunity to win a smartphone up to INR 1 Lac. Further, two other contests initiated by the company- ‘Get a Seed Investment’ encourages aspiring entrepreneurs to pitch in their idea on BlueTie and secure a chance to win a seed investment. ‘Get Mentored’ another of their launch contest, invites professionals to send their Covers/Thesis/ Project Document and stand a chance to get mentored by one of the top industry experts, with a diverse experience across multiple functional areas.
The BlueTie mobile application is available for download on the Google Play Store as well as the App Store.
