Initiating Great Connections is Easier with IceBrekr
Let’s assume you are attending an event where you hope to make some new key connections. Most networking contexts will contain roughly 2 – 5% of your ideal type of contacts. How many pleasant conversations will you need to enter (and exit) with other people before you finally meet those key contacts — assuming you do meet them before the end of the event? If there are 100 people attending will you need to have 90 conversations before you meet your ideal connections?
What if you can identify who in the crowd you should speak to at the beginning, before any of you leave, and before you run out of energy?
IceBrekr upgrades the net in networking.
IceBrekr is a utility to help you make the kind of connections that matter among the people who are nearby. It can act as a virtual name badge, and enable valuable introductions and quick sharing of contact information, without losing the human interaction that makes for a quality connection.
Real Connections Happen in Real Life
Networking Shouldn’t Make You Panic
Networking can be exhausting – like sifting through proverbial haystacks looking for needles! With IceBrekr you have a networking wingman right in your pocket. We can also make it easier to ‘break the ice’! If you can’t get the conversation for some reason, you can show interest from within the app, and have a conversation in person when convenient.
Social Networking, But Face-to-Face
With IceBrekr, virtual and physical worlds collide. Unlike other social apps, IceBrekr is used in real life where catfish can’t swim, and where meeting real people is the main goal of our users. Once a connection is made, we give you a brief but sufficient time window to communicate and then move to your preferred mode for continuing the relationship (live conversation, text/phone, messaging, or social media platform).
Make Quality Matches Easier
Other apps make you swipe aimlessly to meet people only to be left on read. With IceBrekr the goal is to make face-to-face connections with people right where you are. The ease of filtering but with the benefit of seeing real life vibes that make for a great connection.
How to Get Connected With IceBrekr
IceBrekr uses powerful ping technology to help connect you with people who are in the same place as you.
Attending a conference or event? The IceBrekr utility can help you meet the key people you need for success. At a coffee shop on campus? Use IceBrekr to make more meaningful connections.
Let’s look at how it’s done:
See People Nearby You
When you are ready to connect simply open IceBrekr and scroll through the profiles of people nearby. Their profiles will let you know their interests and the type of connections they are looking for. Turn on Filter settings in your menu button to only get notified of users in your context whose profiles fit your keyword search.
Your Profile & Interests
Fill out your profile, add your profile pic, and easily toggle on/off what you want others to know about you. Unlike social media profiles though, IceBrekr makes it easier to start a conversation in real life! Send an “IceBrekr” or add a “Star” (only you can see) to a profile in your Discovery screen and if the other person also happens to star your profile, you will then both be notified of mutual interest.
Send and Answer Connection Requests
See someone you want to connect with? Ideally, walk up and say “Hello” or if in a particular situation that is not ideal, you can send a message and ‘break the ice’ by swiping right on their profile card to “Send IceBrekr”. You will be notified if they answer your request.
Show Your Availability
With easy toggle switches you get to decide when you’re available and the type of connection you are interested in. Don’t want to connect? There are block and hide options you can easily access too.

Yes! There are two options for blocking people. There is hide option, called “mute”, that will hide a user for 12 hours. There is also a block option that will removes a user from your feed and also removes you from theirs permanently.
IceBrekr does not track your location but rather uses radio signals in the phone to identify other IceBrekr users nearby who also have their IceBrekr app on “Discovery” mode. The use of the “Location” module in IceBrekr is similar to how many other apps use that module—especially music players—to enable the app to remain active in the background. Once you close down the app, IceBrekr closes down as well. No location information is gathered or tracked by IceBrekr.
