14th February / Bizpedia

At Bizpedia, we like to think of ourselves as matchmakers in the business world. So for us, Valentine’s Day isn’t just about romance; it’s about creating connections and finding the perfect match for business leaders. Here’s are some tips for using your very own corporate cupid to ride into the sunset with your new strong business network!

Foster Genuine Relationships

Just like in any relationship, building trust and rapport is essential in the business world. Take the time to nurture genuine relationships with your connections.

To build goodwill, it goes a long way to bring an attitude of curiosity and give away as much value as possible without asking for anything in return. By investing in authentic connections, you’ll not only find your perfect match but also cultivate a strong network of allies and collaborators.

Be Tenacious

Just like in dating, you need to keep putting yourself out there to find the perfect match. We can provide the venue, the contacts, and bring you “the dates” but at the end of the day, it’s all up to you to keep showing up and seeing if you hit it off!

This goes for any networking event, the name of the game is consistency, every time you show your face, you are creating a new opportunity to make a potentially game-changing connection!

Define Your Criteria

When searching for a perfect match, it’s essential to know what you’re looking for. What kind of industry and seniority are you going after? Are you looking for a peer group of like-minded people who you can turn to for advice? Or perhaps you’re on the hunt for a business partner who shares your vision and values? Going into a networking experience and being intentional with who you want to meet will make you much more efficient with your time.

Be Open to Opportunities

In matters of the heart and business, sometimes the perfect match comes when you least expect it. Stay open-minded and embrace new opportunities that come your way. Whether it’s a chance encounter at a networking event or a serendipitous connection through a long-lost friend, keep an open heart and mind as you navigate the journey to finding your perfect match.


This Valentine’s Day, let networking be your wingman in the quest for professional love. Who knows? Your next business “match made in heaven” could be just one event away.
