QKonnekt – Connecting People on the Fly
Every year more than 5 billion travellers take flights to travel around the world. Out of the millions of flights scheduled to carry them, 20% either get delayed or cancelled. The delays and cancellations are much more in the holiday season, during a long weekend or unknown weather disruptions.
The Background Story
What do travellers do when they find themselves stuck at the airport with a delayed/cancelled flight status?
A lot of travellers keep themselves busy with their work, but a lot of us would want to make use of the time productively instead of getting frustrated and irritated due to the situation. Being social animals, we have an innate curiosity to connect with people around us and learn, share and help each other. This one quality of the human connection could make all the difference in our lives. Each of us would have had that one connection—a friend, a relative or a colleague who has helped us to jump on to that next level in our lives. Some of us are shy, reserved or introverted and it is hard to break that ice to connect with people around and ask for that one help.
QKonnekt app helps to break that ice and assists in the process of building connections in an unknown place purely based on common interests and beliefs. Similar to the movie Blind Side, where an adoption made a tremendous difference in the life of a kid helping him train to become a famous athlete; or finding a mentor in the movie ‘The Intern’. That one connection, we do not know how, when or where tends to create a huge impact in our lives.
We might be lucky enough to inspire and extend a helping hand to someone who is in need. Or people around us might want to learn that one skill to enhance their lives or earn a job opportunity or critically need a business connection. Wondering how to address this issue and about how travellers can spend their time productively at airport lounges and in waiting areas, lead to the creation of QKonnekt. We have meticulously planned and designed ‘The QKonnekt App’.
QKonnekt is one of a kind, hyper-local socio-professional networking platform that connects like-minded people in real time. Real-time connections sure make a lot of difference. The app serves as a mentoring/networking platform for travellers in wait/transit who can connect with a future mentor or business partner at the click of a button. It is a unique platform that comes with an exclusive connection to specific people of interest. We strongly believe in making effective human connections. Using either social or multiple professional profiles created on the app, travellers can showcase their social or professional interests or both and connect with people of similar interests. The connection with a like-minded individual is instant.
It helps to connect, share knowledge, and exchange opportunities and information. Break the ice and build a network of like-minded professionals or entrepreneurs using QKonnekt app. It resembles an analogy of stars in the sky which you cannot see during the day. Likewise, people and resources around us are waiting to be discovered. Explore your starry night sky with QKonnekt, start with a simple conversation and transform that into a long-term association.
