How do I contact my match?
The introduction email has both of you in the to line. Simply click on reply all to contact the maker you got matched with. Make sure to include a Calendly link or to propose some time slots that work best for you!
Who should make first contact?
Don’t overthink it! If the other maker hasn’t contacted you yet, don’t be afraid to be the one to make the first move.
What if my match doesn’t respond?
Give them a couple of days before sending a polite email checking in with them. If they still don’t answer, please contact us and we will make sure to get you a new match.
I haven’t received my match, what should I do?
Most likely the emails are hitting your spam folder, so make sure to check that first! If they are in your spam folder make sure to mark it as Priority mail and click on that big this is not spam button in Gmail! If they are not in your spam folder, please reach out to us!
I’m a bit shy, how do I break the ice?
Meeting new people can be a bit scary at the beginning, but don’t forget that you’re both in the same boat. So the first tip to break the ice is to make fun of the situation you’re both in and to point out that it’s pretty awkward. As you know Peer Beer is for makers only, so try asking what project they are working on right now!
How long should we schedule a call for?
25 minutes is the magic number! But obviously, both you and your match have the freedom to chat for how long you would like.
Are we allowed to connect outside of Peer Beer?
Absolutely! The goal of Peer Beer is to create stronger connections between different makers, nothing makes us happier than knowing the two of you stayed in touch! We just do the introduction, the rest is on you!
What kind of people are members of Peer Beer?
Peer Beer is for makers only! You’ll find all kinds of people from different backgrounds, countries and industries, but all members are excited about building stuff. Chances are that they have a background in product, design or code, but some of them might also be building hardware!
