Big data-driven mobile matching engine analyzes LinkedIn profile information for supercharged business connections by location

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — CanWe Studios LLC today announced the launch of CanWeNetwork, a unique mobile business networking tool that provides users with valuable professional recommendations of people they need to meet for business opportunities. Recommendations are based on location, skillset, experience, shared interests and personality traits extracted from LinkedIn profiles. It brings a new purpose to geospatial technology by encouraging users to develop in-person connections, that lead to business opportunities, moving from the virtual world back to the real. CanWeNetwork is now available and can be downloaded in the Apple App Store and Android Market (Google Play) by visiting www.can.ws/go.

“Social networks have made us more connected than ever but have had the negative result of limiting real life experiences,” said James Sinclair, vice president, CanWe Studios. “We can take a users’ LinkedIn profile and identify, with a high degree of accuracy, people around them they should meet because they are likely to succeed together. The app uses the power of big data and mobile technology to see and capture actionable opportunities that without CanWeNetwork would simply pass you by unknown. We believe that conversations create opportunity and that’s what CanWeNetwork does, it creates conversations.”

CanWeNetwork takes a different approach to networking and geospatial through the most in-depth proprietary engine available, developed in-house by a team that includes the big data scientist behind one of the leading online dating services. The engine uses cutting-edge algorithms to build complex models of users by augmenting LinkedIn data, through its Open Developer Program, alongside other sources. It then applies statistical analysis to these models to predict the kinds of people users are most likely to succeed with. Its strong privacy controls and business-oriented design engenders the same trust as an introduction by a colleague or associate and gives users complete control of how and when they are contacted.

Once downloaded, the app will run in the background of your mobile device to seek connections for you. Users can set it to alert when new connections are detected or simply review the recommendations it makes and choose to connect at his or her convenience. CanWeNetwork is positioned to be an indispensable tool for anyone wanting to explore business opportunities and be truly connected to the right people.
