meet amazing humans

At each 40-min long digital gathering, you get matched to 4 partners for short 1-to-1 deep convos via video.  Afterwards, set reminders to get back in touch and meet again at future gatherings. 

"I had a blast - this was definitely one of my highlights this year! It was stunning to me that I could relate with everyone so much in meaningful conversations. The best part: I found a friend I deeply connected with and kept seeing after the twine experience!"


"The emotion I came out with reminds me of doing Yoga! I felt energized."

Our day-to-day mission is to bring people together for meaningful 1-to-1 conversations. We think authentic conversations are easy to spark because everyone has something in common, whether that thread is a shared life experience like becoming a parent, a recent career change, exploring a new idea, or losing someone you love.

Our big vision is to make the world a little less frayed, a little less fragmented. In this time of crisis, coming together is more important than ever.
