The Smarter Way to Build a Network

Network Builder, an AI-powered growth engine, is the smart technology at the core of PeopleGrove’s Career Access Platform™ – and it can build communities for universities like never before.

Your network, automated

 The bigger the network, the more powerful its effects are – especially when learners have career exploration, job connections, mentorship, and networking to gain. Unlike all other alternative platforms, PeopleGrove is the only platform technologically advanced enough to automate network growth and user engagement.

Artificial Intelligence Meets Career Access

The only Network Builder that never sleeps

Any career or networking community needs people and career content, both of which have to be continually surfaced to users. Only PeopleGrove uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to do it all. Campus evangelism? There’s a machine for that, lessening the burden on staff.

This is Smart Acquisition

Growing users on your behalf

A Career Access Platform™ needs a healthy mix of students and alumni – and Network Builder brings in the right balance of both. Through a multi-channel approach, messages tailored towards different types of learners invite them into the platform. With the best “netiquette” practices in mind, invitations adjust to an invitee's awareness level, making the introduction to PeopleGrove a completely custom, intelligent experience. 

More alumni in the network gives alumni offices a wider reach for fundraising opportunities.

A more balanced network of alumni and student groups leads to more social capital for all.
