At Vintro, we create opportunity by giving people the power to purchase time and attention from key global decision-makers.
In every Vintro there are two sides:
- The Venture - The person or company buying time to pitch their opportunity.
- The Reviewer - The decision-maker who's time is being purchased.
The exact definition of each of these roles varies based on context. In this article, we cover common ways Vintro is used and what each of these types of interactions typically looks like.
Common Use Cases:
- Companies -> investments
- Non-profits -> donations
- B2B solutions -> purchases
- Products -> distribution networks
- Ventures -> mentorship
- Ventures -> strategic advice
- Talent -> opportunities
