Speed networking helping during troubling times

CORALVILLE (KWWL)- Wednesday night people tried a new way to find their perfect match... But it's not for romance.

It's called "speed networking."

The Iowa City Area Chamber of Commerce put on the event, meant to connect businesses and professionals.

The chamber says networking is beneficial in a down economy, connecting people for services and job opportunities.

"In tough economic times small businesses especially are very vulnerable. Fostering business relationships and gaining new business partners is crucial," said Kelly McCann, Director of Communications with the Iowa City Area Chamber of Commerce.

The chamber will hold more speed networking events this summer and fall.
