Last Tuesday the Hult Founders Lab was able to host Andrea Knopova, an alumna of Hult, as she launched ImpromptMe here in London. ImpromptMe is a social media startup that aims to connect people in a very disconnected world. “Technology connected the world, but disconnected people” is the problem that ImpromptMe sets out to solve by creating a platform that’s sole purpose is to get people to meet face to face. Previous social media platforms have acted like messaging or “liking” can take the place of real conversations with people but instead, have driven farther into isolation than ever before. This is where ImpromptMe comes in. Instead of being able to build artificial relationships through our mobile devices, ImpromptMe doesn’t allow for any conversation between its users except to set up meeting times and locations in public areas. Once the meetup has been created ImpromptMe lets its users be human and experience real community with one another!
It was great to hear Andrea’s story and what has driven her to create such an incredible platform that you can check out here or in the App store by searching “ImpromptMe”. Thank you all for coming out to hear Andrea speak and we look forward to having you at our next HFL event!
