Hello! I'm Sophia and I heard from the Community Club from Jordan Crawford. Happy to be here among y'all!
I've built a visual collaboration platform for virtual workshops and events and it's been mostly used by large communities and non-profits: excelway.co.
What's my favorite part about building a community? Making new friends!

Hello hello!! I'm Helena, and I heard about Community Club through twitter. Excited to be here :)

I've been interested in the people + community space since I could remember. In 2019 I dropped out of Duke and full-sended into the startup world. After covid sunsetted our in-person meetup platform, we built a speed matching platform, Glimpse, that's used by hundreds of universities to keep students connected, conferences to create engaging networking experiences, and more.

Over the past few months, we've been shifting from being an event platform to building a community platform, and are finally launching in beta! If you're looking for a new platform for your community, I'd love to get your 2 cents on what you are thinking about :)

My favorite part of community building is seeing the spark in others when they click with someone. Making people feel validated and like they belong <3

Hello everyone. I'm Brad from Central California. I heard about Community Club on a marketing podcast. I have an idea of a community for small local business owners. I am looking forward to learning about how to take this big idea out of my head and make it become a reality. Thanks

Hey y'all! I saw Mark Tan's post about this on Lenny's newsletter slack.

I'm currently working with the Avo team on The Right Track community. We just launched the community and podcast today: therighttrack.avo.app/

My background is in growth, design and product analytics so focusing on community building is relatively new for me though I started a few years back with the Growth Designers community (growthdesigners.co/)

Hi everyone! I'm Britt Pham — I heard about Community Club from Gesche Haas at Dreamers + Doers. Happy to be in community with y'all ✨

I've been in cb for ~7 years via event + content production. I'm currently designing + launching an offering called Sustaining Purpose: an 8-week experience to support community builders who love what they do — and are tired of perpetual hustle + burnout cycles — in reclaiming their time and space so they can feel good doing it.

My favorite part of community building is the magic of belonging, and how it empowers us to be our best selves both individually and collectively. Excited to connect with more folx here!

Hello everyone, I am Lucie from Prague, Czechia. 🖖
I am the Chief of People & Community in Cesko.Digital which is a civic-tech community of almost 4 000 volunteers who deliver various projects to improve the level of innovation and digitalization across fields in cooperation with the state and NGOs.
What I love about the community building? Well, I guess everything. 😁 The endless opportunities to create a caring and nurturing environment for the members from the perspective of my role. The connections which are being created in the communities and the incredible feeling of belonging which yo get from being a member of one. And in general, the huuuge power of the community and the impact it has - it will never stop amazing me. 🙏

Welcome to the community, Lucie! With a title like Chief of People & Community, does that mean you oversee both internal community (employees) as well as your external community initiatives?
