On a recent episode of the VOOM Podcast our host, Nikki Bedi, invited James Eder - founder of Causr - into the studio to tell us how it all works. Causr is a new app which looks to connect business professionals using geo-location.
"Two years ago, I sat next to a guy who had a CV on the train, and I asked him if he was looking for a job... he ended up coming to work for my company,” explains Eder. "What stops people from doing stuff like that is fear, permission, confidence. The idea of Causr is that we can give people the permission and confidence to engage."
