Friday Networking Lunch FAQs:
How does Friday Networking Lunch ensure I'm meeting new people every week?
Scheduling meetings for multiple people in multiple locations while making sure that each participant is experiencing a variety of novel situations could be a tough problem. Friday Networking Lunch has developed proprietary OcculAnt software to use Ant Colony Optimization (ACO), a means of arranging complex groupings based on an ant's ability to, via the exchange of pheromones (information), find the shortest distance between a food source and the colony.
Ant Colony Optimization ensures that FNL members continue to meet new people at new locations to increase their business network.
