KURIO is a platform that allows users to crowdsource information from their core and extended networks in a streamlined way. The goal is to empower women to solve problems, share opportunities and make meaningful connections faster.

No, KURIO is not a social networking site. KURIO is designed to be a communications tool that helps you crowd source information beginning with your already-established network of trusted friends. To further streamline that process, you can connect with friends and new contacts on the KURIO platform by sending a Connection Request. A benefit of making KURIO Connections is that your KURIO contacts will be alerted each time you post a Public KURIO (even if you’ve forgotten to send them an SMS or link to the thread) so they can quickly tap into your KURIO thread to help you out with information or a much-needed introduction!

We love KURIO for many reasons but the main ones include:

  • Streamlined communications – No more hunting through various emails, text messages, DMs or chat groups for the recommendations or advice of your friends and friends-of-friends. All related communications are centralized in one place on your KURIO thread.
  • Reach a wider audience – Reach a wider audience when your friends share your KURIO with their networks. You’ll be able to seamlessly tap into a larger more diverse pool of phenomenal women. You can also drop a KURIO link on your social media posts, or in your WhatsApp or slack groups to crowd-source information.
  • Keep contact information confidential – With KURIO you can share advice with and make preliminary introductions for members of your extended network without having to share yours or anyone else’s personal contact details. We believe this encourages the free sharing of information among people who are not otherwise connected.
  • Keep that inbox tidy! – Because all KURIO threads are housed on the KURIO platform, your inbox and text messages won’t be clogged. Keep your chat groups tidy by creating “breakout rooms” on a KURIO thread if a certain topic isn’t relevant to all members of the group.

No, KURIO is not limited to professional use. Our hope at KURIO is that the platform is used to create and strengthen relationships among women through the sharing of information and creation of new connections whether they be of a professional or social nature. At KURIO, we believe that both strong professional and personal relationships can lead to exciting opportunities!

Not yet, but that’s our plan for the future! See last faq “Can I Save KURIO to My Home Screen as a Web App?”  for how to save the site to your Home Screen as if it were a native app!

Our mission is to help women optimize their networking structures for professional and personal success. Studies have shown that men typically mix business and friendship, forming large networks which creates increased opportunities for professional and social advancement. Women, however, tend to build long-term, personal connections and form smaller, close-knit networks where they are comfortable asking for both personal and professional advice but hesitate to ask for what they truly want from a networking interaction. At KURIO, our aim is to help women leverage their close-knit communities to replicate the effects and benefits of men’s broader networks.
