New Year, New Lunchpool

From the lunch table to the virtual world

First, Lunchpool was a connection app that helped people meet up in real life. Then, we pivoted to being a connection virtual platform. Now, we are going back to our roots as a connection IRL platform. We're calling it "New Year, New Lunchpool."

As technology continues to advance and humans continue to form relationships over the internet, connection has become an increasingly challenging concept - an abstract idea that is hard to pin down or concretely define. In 2022, connection will continue to be our primary focus. We are building towards fulfilling the world's hunger for connection by making it easier for people to connect. Our objective is making connection more accessible for everyone. And what better way is there of doing this than by bringing Lunchpool back to its roots?

What can you expect from Lunchpool in 2022?

Well, first and foremost, Lunchpool will be a connection IRL platform that helps people meet up in person. We will be focusing on building community and strengthening relationships by providing users with the opportunity to connect face-to-face. This means that you will be able to use Lunchpool to find friends, classmates, co-workers, and more in your area - all without having to rely on the internet.

Secondly, we will also be expanding our virtual offerings. While connection IRL is our primary focus, connection virtual will always be an important part of what we do.

People first, with technology to support

As connection IRL becomes more and more critical to human connection, it's important that people have technology that supports them in this journey. Therefore, one of the things that you can expect over the next few years is for us to continue improving our connectivity app so that it works seamlessly with Lunchpool's connection IRL platform - making your connection experience as frictionless as possible.

Lastly, we are building towards fulfilling the world's hunger for connection by providing new platforms for connection experiences.

Life-changing connections, easier than ever

We believe that connection should be accessible to everyone at all times… whether they're on lunch break or not. So, we're excited to launch connective experiences that you can engage with during the little pockets of time in your day that allow for connection - like when you're waiting for an appointment or sitting at a stoplight.

And that's not all! We are also working towards making building connections easier and more accessible by providing users with new ways to connect via Lunchpool.

So, what's next?

Today is just the beginning - only the first step of our journey towards fulfilling the world's hunger for connection by making connection easier and more accessible than ever before. We hope you will join us on this exciting adventure!

So long and thanks for all the fish tacos! 🌮

Dear loyal supporters and close friends,

As the world opens back up, it's clear that how we spend our time is the most important choice we make each day. While we continue to become more and more capable of spending moments in peace and fellowship with one another, the world around us is changing fast. It's easy to get caught in the grind and forget what we're working towards.

To take my own break from the hustle and bustle, I'm phasing out our professional virtual event services over the next few months. It's been an amazing two years, but I need to recharge and refocus. I'm so grateful to everyone who has participated and supported me along the way. But it's time for me to move on to something new.

Our Client Experience Director, Mary, and our fantastic support team are going to finish out the year with the same level of exceptional service we've been proud to provide over the last three years. If you've got an event on the horizon, rest assured you are in good hands.

I'll be focusing my efforts on building "lunchpools" around the globe. My chief aim is to foster the growth of a community of leaders, innovators, and connectors pooling together over lunch to transform their communities and make the world a better place. If you'd like to get updates, join the ride, and be the first to know about launch dates, the latest news, and more, please subscribe to my weekly LinkedIn newsletter.

Thank you all for everything. I'm so excited to see what the future holds for us all.

Mad respect & admiration,

Alexander O. Abell
Founder, CEO & Lunch Break Enforcer @ Lunchpool
