Startup Organizes Communal Meals Using People’s Social Connections
New service invigorates online relations by taking people offline to connect over social dining.
The London based startup TableCrowd combines online connections and a hearty dinner to give you a new social networking service that allows people with shared interests to meet, eat and mingle.
Founder Kate Jackson pitched her startup at The Next Women European Pitch in London in April this year but TableCrowd was launched in 2011. Drawing on the age old concept of bonding over (and about) food, TableCrowd offers dining experiences from their roster of diners and users can also join “crowds” which are like special interest groups like “Hungry Romantics” and “Escape the City.”
