Having built an influential network in the past 15 years through YouTube, social media and a growing e-mail database of industry leaders, Beet.TV will launch a service to establish enduring one-to-one relationships through intelligent matching and streamlined introductions.

The offering, called BeetConnect, is free. It will be available to our email subscribers, our followers on social media and to qualified individuals in the industry later this summer.

The service is powered by Covalent, a curated and matching platform solutions company.

For the Beet.TV community, I expect that BeetConnect will play a meaningful role in career development, business partnerships and friendships.

Our launch sponsor is Mediaocean.

The program debuts this month during the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.  If you want to  be part of the network, let us know and we will send you a registration form next month.

To learn more about how Covalent works, I interviewed company co-founder and CEO David Lobo in this previously published video. David shares insights on how people can harness Covalent’s platform to meet others based on their interests and backgrounds.
