Building A World Of Friends
Revolutionizing the way we network, socialize and stay connected with one another – we are combining our physical and digital social worlds, encouraging more human interactions to maximize social and business opportunities.
Our Story of Blue Social
It was 2015 when our CEO, Jose Montero, first noticed a fundamental issue with society today: everyone is glued to their smartphones, socializing online, rather than introducing themselves to those around. That was the moment the idea of Blue was born.
The next step was turning our vision into reality, but creating technology that’s extremely diverse, with multiple functionalities, is never an easy fate. Our first move was developing our Blue Social App to integrate our Auto-Networking™ technology. The aim? Increasing in person interaction while enhancing the ability to connect and network on today’s most widely used online platforms.
After successfully launching the App on both IOS and Android, opportunities began to arise within the events industry. It was instantly evident the huge value our technology can deliver to enhance the overall event experience.
Blue Social's Mission
The easiest way to introduce yourself to people nearby in real life.
We are becoming increasingly disconnected with others in real life
Encourage more in person interactions to form authentic connections with those around us
Bring communities closer together and empower individuals through technology
We don't place enough value on interacting with others in person.
We tend to undervalue in-person interactions, which are important in helping us feel connected and less lonely. A recent study found that 87 percent of millennials admitted to missing out on a conversation with someone nearby because they were distracted by their phone.
And do business cards really help us stay connected to people we meet? Everywhere we go, it seems we can’t operate without business cards. Like they say "your network determines your net worth."
And yet, printing billions of business cards is environmentally harmful, wasteful and unnecessary. Millions of trees are cut down to produce the over 27 million business cards that are printed each day. Yet, 88 percent of cards handed out get thrown away within a week!
A Mobile App and Smart Business Card For The Modern Age.
At Blue, we believe reinventing the name tag is our greatest opportunity to maximize your social opportunity. Using Bluetooth, NFC, and QR Codes, Blue helps introduce you to people nearby in real life.
You simply turn on Blue, slide your phone back in your pocket and as soon as you cross paths with another user in REAL-LIFE, you’ll receive a notification! It’s that easy. The first Ambient Social Network – our vision is to ultimately build a world of friends wherever you may go.
The Blue Smart Card allows you to instantly share your social information with just one tap. And best of all, the other person doesn’t need the Blue app to receive your information and add you to their contacts.
Funded By Investors Worldwide
Blue Social is disrupting the business card market: 10B+ printed each year. This has led to Blue gaining a $1,100,000 Investment from Tim Draper, $600k raised from Family and Friends, and $1,070,000 raised in a successful public crowdfunding campaign on Republic.co during the COVID Pandemic.
This is a movement of people all around the world who believe in building The Blue Network.
