About Rob

I recently lauched a site in Chicago called NextIntro.com. The site matches two like-minded professionals for a networking lunch or coffee and suggests three places to meet based on their locations. The site has been featured in Chicago Crains, Built in Chicago, and Chicago Now. I'm a CPA and MBA and found that networking is very important. I also noticed that many people get intimidated attending large networking events or their schedules change and they can't make the event. Networking is a passion of mine.

I'm looking for a co-founder who is either a marketer or developer/designer that understands the current site and would like to join me on taking it to the next level. Our members really like the site - especially because they find it not intimidating to meet people and they get to schedule meetings on their own time. I've been on two lunch meetings based on people that I've met on the site - one attorney and one banker...they love it.
