What exactly is Lunchpool?

We’re building an award-winning platform that helps you get to know the people around you over shared food and drink, both virtually and in-person. Join one of our virtual gatherings so you can connect right from your desk. Just like carpooling, we think lunch breaks are better together.

How our virtual gatherings work

  1. 1

    Find a virtual event that appeals to you and RSVP

    We host virtual lunch breaks and happy hours. Events are organized by area/region and subject-matter. We even help select community organizations virtualize their in-person events.
  2. 2

    Network with like-minded people without leaving your desk

    You don't have to leave your desk to find people that you can really connect with. Our virtual event hall allows you to find cool people that you'd never meet otherwise.
  3. 3

    Enjoy meaningful, entertaining content from presenters

    You'll enjoy talented presenters, engaging speaker panels, live Q&As, happy hour socials and more. It's like a lunch and learn right in your browser.
  4. 4

    Take part in breakout discussions with up to 8 others

    The best part of our virtual gatherings is the discussions that happen at the tables. We find that connections are formed best in smaller groups. Our platform makes networking meaningful!

We're building an app-based solution for teams

  1. 1

    Reserve your organization's private lunchpool network

    We'll create an environment exclusively for your coworkers, commmunity, or group members to connect. Perfect for workplaces or membership groups!
  2. 2

    Invite your peers to join the fun

    Spread the word that the platform is available for access. We make it easy to see everyone who is available for taking a coffee, lunch, snack, or exercise break. (Happy hours, too!)
  3. 3

    Create your profile & check out your network

    Your profile lets the rest of your Lunchpool network know what you're into. Connect over common hobbies, favorite tv shows, and more!
  4. 4

    Form connections over your breaks

    Lunchpool helps you find colleagues and peers with interests and goals in common. It's so easy!

Our upcoming mobile app will allow for lunchpooling on-the-go!

People are talking about lunch again

We are bringing attention to the important need for better breaking habits in today’s digital world. As we work to balance the “desktop dining epidemic” and encourage healthier balance, we’ve stirred up quite a bit of buzz with our virtual and in-person gatherings.
