I wanted to share my latest discovery, dot429. Think of it as an LGBT LinkedIn that's cooler and pinker. Here's how they describe it:
dot429 ushers in the next generation of business networking. Specifically targeted to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender professionals, dot429 provides a unique on and offline platform for the LGBT business community and its supporters to connect and expand their business network, further their careers and stay current with the business world.
Online members communicate through profile pages, updates, messaging and online introductions. Articles written by industry-leaders keep dot429 members on the leading edge. Job postings and an executive mentoring program create career growth.
Along with this powerful online networking, dot429 will also host monthly live social events across the country and internationally. dot429 already has more than 10,000 members from San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York’s LGBT business leaders. By Q4 2010 dot429 is expected to reach over 100,000 members nationally.
