Buoy

2016 - Present


“Buoy” is an iOS app that lets you exchange thoughts and connect with nearby strangers.


Buoy was recently launched in June 2018 in a community gathering at Backyard Brew, a local coffee shop in Palo Alto and the first Buoy Hub.


Buoy hopes to help turn passersby into "neighbors". We want Buoy to grounded in the physical spaces in a neighborhood that already bring people in, starting with independent coffee shops, with the hope that we can then bring them closer together.


Chances are: the person on the sidewalk is in that same funk, the person in line has seen the other side of the fork in the road, and the person at the other table is discovering similar joys in life.


Email us if you'd like to bring Buoy to your space.
