- The website of the Mobilising renewable energy investments      in Climate     in the Caribbean is powered by the software          provider b2match. In case you have participated in a    matchmaking event powered by b2match before, you may    reactivate your former profile and reuse your respective     password to log in to the platform.

      4. How to set my individual time zone

            - All incoming and outgoing meeting requests are listed under the tab  "Meetings" in the main menu.

            - Access your accepted meetings via the tab “Confirmed”.

            11.Why am I not receiving any meeting requests?

            - Please make sure that you have confirmed your participation at the GET.invest B2B Matchmaking session.

            - As there is a maximum number of six meetings possible per person, once you exceed this number, you cannot receive any more meeting requests. If you wish to be open for meeting requests of other participants, you need to cancel one of the scheduled meetings you already have.

            - If you have not received any meeting requests, check if you can improve your profile by providing information about your business activities and references and include up to ten market offers and/or requests. Remember that your profile is your virtual business card. It is highly recommended to spend a good amount of time to create a professional and meaningful profile.
             

            12. Why are some participants not available for meeting bookings?

            - It is possible that the selected person is not participating at the GET.invest B2B Matchmaking session and therefore appears as “Not available”.

            - You may always contact the participant via the “Message” button to explore common interests and suggest a meeting during the GET.invest B2B Matchmaking session.

            - If interested, the other participant needs to confirm his or her participation in the GET.invest B2B Matchmaking session.

            - Participants may also appear as “Not available”, if they are booked out already or if both of you don’t have any common time slots.

            If you need any assistance during this process, please contact your personal onboarding advisor (See “My profile”\ “Your local support office”).
             

            13. How does the remote 1:1 networking work?

            - Your 1:1 meetings will be managed remotely via video calls within the scheduled time frame.

            - The video conferencing is provided by the b2match platform, thus no need to install any software.

            - All confirmed meetings (if any) show a button "Start Meeting" and the date/time of the respective meetings. Please access the meetings by clicking on that button.

            - We recommend testing the meeting function before the event to check your camera and microphone settings.

            - For a better sound quality, we recommend using a headset during the 1:1 meetings.

              - Your meeting partner does not show-up? - Use the "Message" button and ask for joining the meeting or re-schedule the meeting to another date/time.
               

              14. Why are some appointments not shown on your personal agenda?

              - Your meeting request might not have been answered yet or could have been rejected.

              - Your meeting might have been cancelled by your meeting partner.
               

              15. Why can’t I send out any more meeting requests?

              - Please consider that you cannot schedule more than six meetings.

              - As pending requests block additional requests, please answer your meeting requests before you send out new requests.
               

              16. Where can I get support?

              - If you need any assistance during the registration or booking phase, please contact your personal onboarding advisor (See “My profile”\ “Your local support office”).
