A new peer-to-peer network promises to match up executives so they can get right down to business.
The Mercury Company is accepting applications for its vendor-free network that allows executives to connect with each other without having to navigate through salespeople and other distractions at industry events.
“Mercury is a secure, vetted network geared toward technology executives who don’t have the time to sort through a massive personal Rolodex to figure out which of their many contacts has the right mix of background, experience, and successes to help answer mission-critical business decisions,” CEO Leah Williams said.
Williams said she created Mercury after realizing tech leaders needed help sifting through the noise that often hampered their efforts to obtain unbiased data.
“My clients attended to meet each other, not to listen to industry trends, and not to hear a sales pitch. That made it clear to me that these leaders needed a vendor-free space for collaborating regularly and even for just the comfort of knowing that others who faced similar challenges were able to overcome them.”
Peer Match utilizes AI technology to connect experienced counterparts. Mercury’s more traditional channels, Forum and Private Chat, are organized in five levels, arranged by company revenue, that lets members interact with full confidence they will reach the audience most qualified to answer. Additional benefits include vendor references, earning top contributor rewards, and invitations to exclusive programs in select cities.
