Over the past years, Talent Garden has grown into a truly international community with like-minded Taggers from Italy to Vienna, Copenhagen, Dublin, Rome, Barcelona, Turin, Bucharest, and many other phenomenal places. Talent Garden aims to continuously provide its members with opportunities to grow both personally and professionally and to enable startups and companies to succeed.
And while building strong local communities is important it’s also vital to have a seamless way to build international business relations with Taggers across Europe. The new Talent Garden Networking App: Gini, was created especially for this purpose and will be officially launched on the 13th of June 2019 connecting thousands of Taggers across campuses and countries.
WHAT IS GINI
Gini is a professional matchmaking assistant here at Talent Garden. A web app, that can be accessed from your phone or desktop at gini.talentgarden.com. It helps expand its user’s professional network within the international Talent Garden community. By simply logging in with the members’ TAG People account, Gini merges the provided person and company profile information. The algorithm then analyses the best people to connect with.
HOW DOES GINI WORK
Every Thursday, Gini provides its users with five AI-powered match recommendations from the international Talent Garden community. For each recommendation, the app shows the Taggers profile and gives the option to connect or not. If chosen to connect Gini sends a request to the other Tagger, asking if they would like to receive a short introduction. If the other Tagger agrees, they will be introduced via email to arrange to meet.
