To scale community, Marissa and Janice launched Flockd, a real-world app for connectivity and productivity, inspired by the coworking movement and social concerns like what’s happening in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. It’s Marissa’s dream to create a new way for people to connect offline. It is Janice's dream for everyone to live 'on purpose' which requires, among other things (such as knowing your purpose) a combination of creating genuine relationships and productivity.
Sign our Manifesto to get your own FLOCKD (first 2,000 people who sign up).
Please note, Flockd can design custom-branded pyramids with your logo. In addition, Flockd open to working with designers in an open patent license agreement. Please contact us to learn more about making Flockd your own.
