December is a notorious time of year for both social and business get-togethers. In addition to holiday events, there are year-end meeting and plans for new year projections. It’s enough to make your head spin—especially if you’ve got big business goals to start a company in 2013.
Fortunately, www.meetadvisors.com is a place where both established and emerging entrepreneurs can maximize their limited time to make limitless contacts.
Created by seasoned entrepreneur Adam Fridman, Meet Advisors is a virtual place where professionals can receive tips on starting up a business. “There are millions entrepreneurs in the USA alone,” says Fridman, “and I hope Meet Advisors makes connecting with advisors fast and simple.”
“Through the years, I’ve often sought guidance from experts and advisors. Networking is great yet finding the right person willing to help can prove problematic,’ Fridman explains. “That’s why I started Meet Advisors where approved entrepreneurs receive advice on everything from internet marketing to public relations. Without noise or spam, the platform also provides an avenue for advisors to receive credit for their sound input via a public profile on which entrepreneurs review them.”
Fridman launched the forum last month to connect start-up company professionals with those established business. Among the companies offering advice on business development and information technology are Tumble Rumble Productions, ADP and NuBoCoder.com.
In addition to Meet Advisors, Fridman founded GoBumper. “I love the challenges and excitement of startup companies,” notes Fridman, who spent the past 10 years tackling a number of ventures with a focus on business development and strategy.
“I believe my experience in corporate finance provided lessons in structure and discipline as well as a very strong toolkit in analytics. On the other hand, it can get hard to see the forest from the trees. Corporate structure can hinder creativity and innovation. In my case, I am happy to have had corporate experience to help me move forward with my entrepreneurial career.
“Let’s face it, we all know entrepreneurs are working within constraints: tight budgets, ambitious goals and constant challenges,” adds Fridman. “Meet Advisors is a place where free advice is offered in fun and friendly way.
“Marginalizing the value of advice from the right professional at every milestone from idea incubation is the biggest mistake entrepreneurs make. My aim is that Meet Advisors will counteract this course and arm start-ups with the precautionary steps needed for success.”
