It is the mission of Ashlee Ammons, co-owner of Mixtroz, an event and meeting software platform, to bring people out from behind their mobile phones and into the real world where they can mix, network, and make genuine human-to-human connections.
She tells the students at her alma mater, Baldwin Wallace University, that “you need to connect with everyone on this campus because you have no idea who might be able to open a door for you someday.”
Mixtroz basically teaches generations of workers and students the old tried and true value of face-to-face networking, which is becoming a dying art. “People want that real, live connection with other people. But it’s sometimes hard to just walk up to a group of people you don’t know and try to strike up a conversation.” So Mixtroz does that for them!
At an event, the meeting organizer behind the scenes has strategically created questions for the attendees to answer, which will determine which breakout session they are assigned to. Later, when the mix starts, event attendees download the Mixtroz app, take a selfie so their soon-to-be team can recognize them, answer all the questions, and then get placed into groups that are automatically assigned by Mixtroz’s proprietary algorithm, based of off whatever criteria and weighting the event planner decided in advance was important.
You owe it to yourself to watch this quick video of Ashlee speaking at her alma mater and the not-so-surprising results that took place after the freshman class was exposed to Mixtroz’s magic during an orientation activity:
Mixtroz is a meeting and event planning platform that engages and improves meetings and events for students, faculty, and alumni while collecting data for meeting hosts. Attendees download the Mixtroz app and complete a virtual name tag and survey customized by the organizer. At a predetermined time, the app simultaneously matches attendees and guides them to an intelligently automated match of people for a curated group connection experience in real-time! At the completion of the session, the organizer gains the visualized survey data collected from the interactions which can be used to drive future revenue-generating cost-cutting measures all throughout your organization. Mixtroz can be up and running at your college or university event instantaneously. So, to get started working less and innovating more, visit Mixtroz at www.mixtroz.com.
