About us...

In April 2020, just as the world closed its doors to in-person networking events for the very first time, Jeni Smith founded NetKno.

Born from a demand for networking evolution, NetKno has helped individuals, corporate teams, and universities all over the world to network with purpose.

Meet the Founder

Jeni Smith has over 16 years’ experience in networking strategy and is currently embarking on a PhD at Durham University researching the relationship between networking event anatomy and entrepreneurial narratives.

During her career, Jeni has won several awards in enterprise including being named one of the Future 100 Young Entrepreneurs in the UK, becoming a finalist in the Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2021 & 2022, and being named by the Telegraph as one of their 100 Women to Watch.

Between 2017-2019 she conducted two rounds of academic research with Durham University, exploring her unique, strategic business networking model. The research results spurred her on to launch NetKno and are what we now use to develop our bespoke networking strategies.
