Forbes recently posed the question: is The Dots ‘The next LinkedIn?” Why? Because The Dots is designed around the networking needs of the future workforce of 'No Collar' professionals – creators, freelancers and entrepreneurs.
The Dots’ key innovation is facilitating networking by mapping the full teams that deliver projects (a bit like a community-driven IMDB) rather than via accepted invites. This high-trust data enables us to make personalised recommendations to clients and - in the longer-term - will enable clients to hire full teams, not just individuals.
Founder Pip was named by The Sunday Times as one of the Top 100 Disruptive Entrepreneurs and has put helping business build diverse teams at the heart of The Dots. 68%+ of The Dots' community is female, 31%+ BAME & 16%+ LGBT+, an attractive resource for clients who must increasingly deliver on diversity targets.
