Graduway enters strategic relationship with LinkedIn

Alumni networking startup Graduway  announced it is entering into a strategic relationship with LinkedIn.

Graduway, which launched last month, already powers alumni networking platforms across 14 countries and recently closed a round of seed funding through BTG Pactual, Gigi Levy and RSL Ventures.

The Israeli company says its new relationship with LinkedIn will provide its clients with the opportunity to connect their alumni networking platforms to LinkedIn through use of a private application programming interface.

As Daniel Cohen, Co-founder of Graduway explains in a prepared statement, ‘’We believe our clients will be among the first in the market to harness the full power of LinkedIn. This is not just about making it easier for alumni by avoiding duplication of their login details, professional profiles or contact lists. It is about truly leveraging the tremendous potential LinkedIn has to offer as a connecting tool, within and beyond the school’s exclusive network.’’

Cohen adds, ‘’This strategic relationship with LinkedIn will help our clients not only to stay in touch with their alumni by not physically losing contact. But critically their alumni will stay emotionally engaged.’’
