Homecooked was building a social dining app for small communal meals at peoples' homes. Our target problem was the same – loneliness.
The small group size, the home environment, and the warmth around the table. We knew that these things were core to the experience, but were having trouble growing because meals needed to be hyper localized.
We realized that the Homecooked concept could apply to high-rise apartments, and also much more broadly than just small group meals. Residents were asking us to build a general social events app so they could meet their neighbors.
We call it "actually social media." Our goal is to build a tool that helps people connect in-person, face-to-face. We're think we can solve loneliness.
