San Francisco today lies at the forefront of global innovation. It’s a city bursting with creative and talented individuals from all areas of expertise, and one that not only pushes the envelope on social causes and technological advances, but also markets itself as a center of idea exchange. There is seemingly no ceiling to impede growth - until you look a little deeper.
In a city as diverse and robust as San Francisco there’s a surprising amount of isolation. We tend to work with like-minds, which gives us little opportunity to connect with friends of a different style, pace, or career path. And even if we wanted to diversify our friend groups, there doesn’t seem to be many ways for people to comfortably meet and get to know others outside the structure of day-to-day life. This leaves many feeling like they’re always either looking from the inside out or from the outside in.
