Having all those social networks is great. I love Quora, Twitter and Facebook. But once you meet a person face to face, you’ll soon see the relationship take a whole another level. So why not create a platform exactly for that?
Imagine you’re in a new city. As I often am, because I love traveling. And I’ve got AirBnb set up. And what I’m really interested in is meeting someone who would tell me something I haven’t heard before. Billions of us now live in this hyper-mediated world. And whether being notified by people’s social statuses through the iPhone or on our Google Glasses, it’s the physical experiences that we have that feel the most deep and meaningful. So that’s why Wannalunch.
A network to go on lunch with interesting people, from your own vertical or from a totally disparate area from your own. It’s the time you’re spending anyway. Lunch. So it’s very low pressure. If you don’t want to follow up with anything else later, that’s where it ends. You had lunch with someone and perhaps learned something new. So you never lose anything. You only gain new experiences.
Throughout life what never seems to go away is the curiosity and will of meeting new, interesting people. People at their death-bed say they miss deeper relationships, more meaningful connections. People put an intrinsic value on it. Yet in today’s digital world we are more digital and disconnected than ever.
Wannalunch provides a space during lunch that can lead to you seeing things in a new way and to new partnerships.
