We believe that all people deserve to feel a deep sense of belonging, and that isolation should be a thing of the past.

We humans belong together. We’ve always been social creatures, at our happiest gathering around campfires, cafes, porches, and plazas to share stories and lose track of time together.

When the Internet came along, it gave us more ways to interact than ever before. We were no longer limited to spending time with only our neighbors: we could find people with shared interests a world away.

But something got lost in translation. Many of our interactions happen through unrelenting feeds and streams of messages zipping past one another.

When we do gather virtually, our interactions often feel awkward, fleeting, and forced: we perform for the camera or tune out, instead of truly connecting. Once it’s over, we feel drained, not energized.

That’s why we made Gatheround.

Our mission is to strengthen communities by giving people a sense of togetherness online that they typically only feel in person.

A special feeling is possible when a community gathers face-to-face—it lights us up and leaves us glowing. By offering delightful experiences designed for genuine connection, Gatheround invites us to have that same feeling even when we’re far apart.
We believe stronger communities are the antidote to isolation and the key to human happiness. As each person feels a deeper sense of belonging, our hope is that we can begin to gather around and solve humanity’s greatest challenges together.

We’re gathering people who believe in our mission!

We believe in creating a truly happy place to work and setting the bar for remote culture.

Our founders—a social-change technologist, an activist turned entrepreneur, and a community organizer—are leaders with a track record of success from Change.org, Obama for America, Hustle, the MIT Media Lab, and Facebook.
