They're also our all-in-one virtual conference platform, so everything is in one place. No need to worry about swapping platforms between watching streams and organizing meetings.
Last year we had 1670 meetings and 9004 chat messages.
How does Matchmaking work?1. Check your mail for an invitation
An invitation to join the event through Brella will be sent to your e-mail. Investors, executives, and startups can expect the invitation 3 weeks before the event, and visitor ticket holders can look out for it on the beginning of festival week.
Once you complete your profile, you’ll see your recommended matches right away. Select a profile, choose an available time and send a meeting request to start the discussion.
We've added tons of topics so you could filter people based on:
Ϟ participation type (online or in-person)
Ϟ functional expertise (ask for or offer expertise in biz dev, UX/UI, marketing, etc)
Ϟ type of attendee (your ticket type and some more specific options)
Ϟ program track interests (share thoughts about stage talks or find people with similar interests)
Ϟ tech knowledge (ask for or offer expertise in AI, big data, blockchain, IoT, etc)
Ϟ investment rounds in interest (offering or looking for)
Ϟ startup stage (your startup's stage or interest towards said stage)
4. Show up on the event day for amazing content and relevant 1:1 meetings!
Fill your schedule with relevant 1:1 meetings and maximize your valuable time at sTARTUp Day!
sTARTUp Day is a great event for 1-on-1 meetings. Big enough to find the people of interest, but not too big to get lost in the crowd.

Where will you meet?If both of you are participating onsite, you'll be assigned a table number in the matchmaking area. All you have to do is show up at the right table at the right time!
If one or both of you are participating virtually, you can use Brella's built-in videoconferencing or arrange a Zoom/Teams/Google Meet meeting via chat.
Some tips for securing the best meetingsϞ Log in as soon as matchmaking opens for your ticket. Get in there when everyone's calendars are still free!
Ϟ Fill in your profile & add an introduction. That will make you seem more approachable.
Ϟ Take some time to add all of your interests. You're going to match with people based on this.
Ϟ Actively request meetings. Be proactive!
Ϟ People are more likely to accept a meeting if they know why you want to meet them. Leave them a note.
Ϟ Don't send the same sales pitch to all participants. Personalize it for everyone you want a meeting with.
