NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Relationship Science (RelSci), the ultimate tool for business development for professionals and dealmakers, announces a partnership with TEDxWallStreet, providing conference attendees free access to RelSci’s acclaimed business development platform to find fast, actionable, and relevant knowledge about how their business relationships intersect with others at the conference. This proprietary, in-depth research tool will facilitate business development among conference attendees.
The RelSci platform provides research-driven profiles on over 2.5 million top decision-makers and over one million organizations across the public, private, finance, and nonprofit sectors. Clients use RelSci to gain a deeper understanding of the people and organizations they want to do business with, leverage existing relationships that can provide warm introductions, and identify commonalities with other professionals that make every interaction a warm one.
“Conferences are potentially gold mines of opportunity for cultivating new business relationships, but who you meet has been largely dependent on who you randomly bump into,” said Neal Goldman, CEO and founder of RelSci. “Using RelSci to identify key potential partners and map out common relationships and interests before and after attending conferences makes an enormous difference for my own business development. I’m so pleased to begin offering this tool to conference attendees at TEDxWallStreet.”
TEDxWallStreet 2013 is a half-day, not-for-profit event that will take place at the New York Stock Exchange on Wednesday, October 30, 2013. This year’s theme, “Filling the Void,” has attracted a slate of bright and often unconventional thinkers from finance, business, technology, entertainment, social justice and the arts, who are set to speak passionately about local, global, social, and economic voids and how to fill them. Among the speakers at the conference are George Whitesides (CEO of Virgin Galactic), Bob Woodruff (American TV Journalist), Mary Ellen Iskenderian (CEO of Women’s World Banking), Brian David Johnson (Futurist at Intel and Author), Lynne Twist (Global Visionary and Founder, Soul of Money Institute), to name a few.
