Our Mission

"To help people build good relationships so that they can live happier lives."

Our Story

We are passionate about relationships and our need as people to have a sense of community. It is so critical to our happiness.

And, in order to have good relationships and a sense of community, we need to be able to communicate well as a community - in a way that is efficient, calm and fun.

Current communication platforms for your “community groups of 10-150 people” are broken - group messaging doesn’t do it well and social media certainly doesn’t. And, that causes the group’s sense of community to not be as good as it could be. We think that this is a huge problem and one worth solving.
