Introduction of the Deal Flow Platform
The Deal Flow Platform is a professional network facilitating the exchange of professional and personal information between individual people and companies with the goal of conducting business between two or more parties. This socialization and networking may include searching the database of companies Deal Flow Rooms, reading profile pages of other members Deal Flow Rooms, adding personal and business materials and content to your Deal Flow Room and communicating with members and TSI staff through chat, discussion rooms, messaging and email via the Deal Flow Platform.
The Deal Flow Platform works as an online network composed of Deal Flow Rooms (company and individual profiles) bringing together individuals and companies in the travel industry to facilitate networking for fundraising, business development deals, pilots and testing, technology integrations and licensing and mergers and acquisitions. Our match making algorithm helps find matches between members.
Introduction of Deal Flow Rooms
Deal Flow Rooms are profiles of companies and individuals, managed by Members. A Member claims a Deal Flow Room as its company’s profile and adds content, personal and business materials to the Deal Flow Room for other Members to view and to connect. Deal Flow Rooms should include public information. Any private information that you do not want to share with Members should not be published in your Deal Flow Room.
Introduction of Discussion Rooms
Discussion Rooms are chat rooms where two or more members can have a discussion about each other’s products and services. To start a discussion a member clicks, “Request a Discussion” on a Deal Flow Room. The Deal Flow Room member will receive a request to accept the discussion. Once accepted, a Discussion Room is created and the requestor and the receiver can then have a discussion. By default, TSI is automatically invited to each Discussion Room to act as a facilitator to move the discussion forward.
