When quarantine hit, we all jumped on a 20-person zoom call together for St Patty's Day and when the party ended - we were so exhausted. Awkward silences, people talking over each other - it was tiring. We were then set out to solve this problem not for ourselves but for the rest of the world.
Traditional communication platforms make it hard to feel like you can come together. There is no opportunity to recreate the serendipity that happens in real life. Remote workers feel more alone, and virtual events lack engagement. We want to bring large groups together online, starting with a new video application that feels more social.
Since Rally started during the pandemic, our aim has always been to make people feel like part of the group again. We have hosted hundreds of networking events, happy hours, virtual cafeterias, student socials and more. With each of these events, people have come away feeling connected to their peers, colleagues, and classmates. Distance shouldn't change how we connect with one another, and we are proving this with Rally, one event at a time.
