Inspired by User Interviews

Outlet was inspired by journalists, but can be applied to other kinds of professionals. It’s an industry-specific app that uses creativity—in the form of word games and drawing games to lower the barrier for people to connect. It’s LinkedIn but with a playground.

You choose from games, to be played with a partner or within a group, and there is always the chance to chat. This is a first-name, no-titles environment
