Who We Are & What We Do
Our mission is to create a safe place for people from all different backgrounds to feel welcome. We won't tolerate any racism or prejudice of any kind. We embrace everyone's diversity and unique contributions to build a strong community.
Our members are curious about people unlike them and want to grow and learn, while having fun!
Our vision is to connect good people on a global scale. We hope to create a digital space for people to feel less lonely. To learn and grow as a person. To meet people and build lifelong connections.
Post Covid, we'll be hosting retreats
co-sponsored by our brand partners for our members to travel together & share experiences.
Meet our Founders
Sana Akhand, CEO
As a first generation American, I've always felt like an outcast. I didn't quite fit in with my American friends all the time, and I definitely didn't fit in with a culture that I never known as my own. I've had to create my own place in this world to stand out and be myself.
It's my passion to encourage people to be unapologetically themselves. To never hide their authentic selves to fit into "society norms".
This is why I'm combining the past 10 years of event planning experience, culture building at tech startups and my year long break to backpack across the world together to build a community of growth-minded, diverse group of people looking for a place to call home.
Mariann Yip, COO
As a native New Yorker, I understand the struggle to meet like minded people in a big city. I can attest that sometimes I still feel lonely in a place with millions of people. I knew we needed to create a space that unites good people together.
With my extensive travel experience and my background in PR & Marketing, I knew I needed to create a place that embraces experiences, a place that celebrates culture, with an extremely diverse group of people and a place that is welcoming to all.
That's what city life is all about.
There is a sense of belonging no matter who you are.
