"Intro provides businesses attending events with a much better understanding of who is engaging with them thanks to our unique technology. By accepting, Intro will automatically create a personalised link with key information about your businesses, allowing students to rapidly engage with you online. Your unique QR code will enable you not to miss key student contact details, if you are busy engaging with other students"
