How to network at Nexus Dealmakers Summit

With the Nexus Dealmakers Summit set to go in less than a week, the custom-tailored networking platform went live this week.

Attendees are encouraged to log into the event platform ASAP to block off free time, set up profiles, and begin setting up meetings. 

Here’s a written guide to using the platform, Jublia, alongside the LendIt video guide. Before we get to Miami, attendees have to:

  • Add profile photo
  • Add profile description
  • Confirm meeting availability
  • Set time zone to the US – New York (EST)
  • Set up notifications
  • Optionally, Sync to calendar

Let’s find out how

By now, the LendIt team should have sent out an email to attendees with login details that looks like:
