BCI Global Community Resource Page
We are thrilled that you’ve decided to join BCI’s Global Community of curious, creative, confident, and courageous members. The BCI Community is where you can learn about new tech breakthroughs, find your next business partner, or be inspired to tackle big ideas with a group of like-minded, motivated innovators. This page is designed to provide you with a checklist of items to do now that you are in the community, tips, and recommendations. After you have completed all of the items below, register for the New Member Meet & Greet.
Key Community Features
Don’t miss anything! Get started.
Download Mobile App
Get the most out of the community experience, download the BCI Mighty Network mobile app.
Your profile helps other members find you to connect and collaborate.
Choose how you want to get notifications, when, where, and how often.
Find topics you are interested in and join those groups, learn, share and discuss.
1 – Mobile App
Download iOS/Android App
Our#1 recommendation is that you download the mobile app. It’s the easiest way to access everything happening inside of the community. Plus, you can customize your notifications, so you never miss a post, event invitation, or message from members you want to stay connected with.
2 – Community Profile
Help people find you
The most important thing for you to do is to complete your profile so that other members can find and connect with you. If you want to see what a completed profile looks like, you can find mine here. I recommend you add a photo, complete the About Me section (a brief bio), and add an introduction.
3 – Join Groups
Join Groups of interest
What Groups have you joined? Met any interesting members? I hope by now you’ve also completed your profile and downloaded the mobile app. Today, I want to make sure you know how to start to engage with the content shared by BCI and the community.
4 – Share and Comment
Participate in conversations
When you’re ready, you can also make your own post. Community members can post directly into Groups, but not to the entire network. You make a post by typing directly into the box that says “Share what’s on your mind…” or by clicking the + icon at the top if you want to choose a specific type of post.
- Quick Posts are great for your thoughts and to share things like interesting articles, videos, podcasts, and more with the community.
- Questions and Polls are when you want to engage your fellow community members more profoundly and aggregate the response. Use a question or a poll to get more insights about a big question or idea you might have.
5 – Find Members
Connect with other members
The best way to find members is by clicking “Members” in the navigation. You can use the filters at the top to find members near you, new members, or members who are online now. If you want to search for people, groups, and content, use the search box at the top to “Search The BCI Global Startup Community.” Try searching for the subjects you care about and the challenges you’re interested in working on.
6 – Manage community notifications
Set your notifications
Staying connected is an essential part of being a member of the BCI Global Startup Community. However, we know everyone has different preferences on what is too much or too little when it comes to notifications. You can turn off mobile notifications, get email updates or not, and decide what types of notifications you want to receive (Cheers, Comments, @Mentions, Event Reminders, Post from Hosts, Poll Answer Results, Questions you can answer, Activities, Activity from members you follow and more)
