Meeting new people to discover life
We have just launched The Breakfast app on Product Hunt. It happened much sooner than planned thanks to COVID-19.
The Breakfast has always been about real human interactions. Offline. Face-to-face. In your favorite breakfast place with good coffee and atmosphere.
We launched in our first city (Moscow, Russia) in late 2019 and were planning to go on city by city for an obvious reason: you need enough people on board to join and have breakfast with.
COVID-19 changed everything.
We stopped going out. But while some of us learned to cook amazing breakfasts at home, the need of meeting and talking to someone new has only increased.
You may have noticed that being super productive in terms of work and online education does keep you going, but in the long run your energy goes down. My hunch is that this happens because in these pandemic days we all have less (or none) spontaneous social experiences — less new people.
New people make us feel alive. We are wired to socialise in real life and also in our thoughts. We wrap our lives, emotions, identities, values and dreams around other people — consciously and unconsciously. And we feel dumb when we are deprived of new social events.
So! We decided to temporally tune The Breakfast towards online meetings — you can now meet and talk to creative and driven people worldwide!
We are looking forward to getting back to real offline breakfasts, but let’s take the best out of the situation. When was the last time all of us were so stuck at our homes and so hungry for real human interactions? Isn’t it the rare and inspiring chance to talk to someone new from somewhere around the globe?
The app is invite-only to keep the community awesome and paid to keep the business model transparent.
