Social Platform Sets Up Blind Coffee Dates With Fellow Office Mates

The app allows people with similar interests to join up platonically over a java using algorithms to foster a greater overall sense of community in the workplace.

Craving a conversation about one of your more esoteric hobbies? Without a trip to the local lake, if you’re into fishing, or scouring the city for a knitting circle, it might seem impossible to satisfy this yen with a colleague. A new app, CoffeeWho, can make this possible by linking users up with likeminded members of their office community.

The app, which is currently in development and targeted primarily at large organizations, works by using an algorithm that puts users with similar interests together, so they can then meet up one-on-one. Each employee would make their own bio page listing their interests and their role at the company, so that others whose curiosity is piqued by their position and/or personal passions, can connect.

The overall goal is to foster a more collaborative, working atmosphere in large enterprises where meeting one-on-one can be surprisingly challenging.

One catch—CoffeeWho will provide the service, but it’s up to the employer to decide whether to fund the Frappuccino.
