MeetingWave is a free tool for arranging meetings with new people for business, professional or social purposes. MeetingWave is laser focused on providing a flexible versatile online tool that allows members to meet new clients, network with others in their industry, recruit new team members, connect with potential investors, find new opportunities or jobs, or make new business contacts or friends.

Members can create Public Invites to offline face-to-face meetings that specify the types of people they want to network with or the purpose of their networking meeting. MeetingWave would then notify the member by email each time someone accepts their Public Invite. They must then approve or decline each acceptance — and can do so for any reason. MeetingWave then notifies the other individuals whether he or she may attend the member's meeting. Only "approved" individuals may attend. Thus, the member who posted the Public Invite ultimately controls whether the meeting will happen and who may attend.
Members can post Invites for coffee, lunch, drinks or any other networking meeting. Or, a member can browse through Public Invites posted by others and accept those of interest.
