Matchmaking Service Connects People Looking For Knowledge Instead Of Dates

Canadian startup E-180 wants to change the way people learn and grow their businesses by enabling one-on-one ‘brain dates’ that help learners pick up knowledge tailored to their needs.

Based on the belief that not all learning takes place in a formal educational setting and that people have the power to develop their full potential on their own, E-180 developed online and offline matchmaking tools that connect people interested in sharing their knowledge with those looking to learn something new. Users can offer or request skills on the website and be as broad or as specific in terms of what they want to teach or learn, and the platform’s algorithm will find a match in their area. Started in 2011, E-180 currently serves an estimated 5,000 to 6,000 members in Montreal, New York, Paris, Boston and San Francisco.
