Who we are: WONDER
It’s the great irony of our age: we’re more digitally connected than ever, yet feel increasingly lonely and isolated. Wonder addresses this problem, using technology to help people strengthen their relationships and improve their social skills. (See http://wonderapp.com)
We are experts in designing systems that solve the problem of social isolation. In over a decade building Couchsurfing.com, CEO Casey Fenton and our other founders helped 10 million people form 100 million new relationships. Couchsurfing, the world’s largest trust experiment, taught us the three key elements that power, how people develop connections with each other.
Wonder applies this expertise universally, helping people measure and optimize their social skills, relationship opportunities, and reputations. Launching on iPhone and Android in early summer 2015, the app engages friends and colleagues in answering questions and sharing insights that reveal strengths, blind spots, and the best opportunities for stronger connections. This data yields the three-part Wonder score -- in effect, a “social FICO.”
