Posting an opportunity is the most important activity which you can use Matchplat for. It is your way of voicing your company's strategic needs to the business world.
Please remember that all opportunities posted on Matchplat will be anonymous until you find a Match. This places importance on the quality of every opportunity, as opposed to the brand that lies behind it. Furthermore, it is our way of safeguarding your firm's strategy from your competitors. To post an opportunity, just follow a few easy steps:
Write a simple sentence that summarises your business activity
This is the most important part of the opportunity as it contains the details of your business needs. We recommend splitting the description of the opportunity into two distinct parts: The first paragraph should briefly describe your company (e.g. geographic area, size, business activity, etc.) whilst always remaining entirely anonymous. In the second paragraph, you should describe your business opportunity. We advise you to go into as much detail as possible, so as to maximise the visibility of your opportunity within the platform.
Fill out the proposed fields, which summarise the foundation of your opportunity, so that you are only visible to those partners who fit the characteristics you are looking for. The mandatory fields include the following:
Finally you can also involve one or more of your colleagues within your posted opportunities, so as to keep them updated on every change or Match that concerns the post in question. You could compare this functionality to when you place someone on (cc) in an e-mail. To involve a colleague, simply select their name from the registered users in the drop-down list.
Once these steps have been completed, the opportunity may be posted. Choose from the following options:
To post your opportunity on our global network
To only render your post visible to your colleagues, in order to keep all of your company's ongoing business opportunities within one centralised network. This is primarily intended for business opportunities you find outside of Matchplat that you would like to inform your team on.
