The story

At Glimpse, we talk a lot about our mission to connect people. It’s why Brian and I dropped out of Duke two years ago. We believe in the power of communities to help people grow and find a sense of belonging — to make them feel loved.

Zoom has a similar mission: to Deliver Happiness. Plus, their technology is unbeatable. We could not be more excited to pioneer into the Zoom App ecosystem with Heyyo Chat.

Heyyo Chat is just the beginning. For those familiar with Glimpse, you know we’ve built the best 1-on-1 speed matching experience for your community. To date we’ve brought millions of people together throughout the pandemic — from Princeton University undergrads meeting for the first time, to team formations at Social Good Hackathons, to recruiting at Grace Hopper’s career fair.

The Future

Glimpse will continue to facilitate 1-on-1 speed matching. In fact, we plan to bring the 1-on-1 experience into Zoom. Here’s a sneak peak: Shuffle.

We are so excited for this next chapter of Glimpse as part of the Zoom ecosystem 🚀
