Building a better way to meet online

Gather is a video chat platform designed to make virtual interactions more human.

The Metaverse

In many ways, the physical world is extremely constraining.
Today, where you live dictates:
An avatar with a speech bubble says "If you can work at the company that excites you most."An avatar with a speech bubble says "Whether you can access certain educational opportunities."An avatar with a speech bubble says "Which friends or family you stay close to."
Gather’s mission is to remove these constraints from people’s lives.
We do this by building the Metaverse, a virtual layer over the physical world
where people can work, socialize, and learn.

Gather's role in the Metaverse

Since we launched in May of 2020, Gather has brought millions of people together.
With our creation tools, users are able to build their own custom, interactable spaces.
Five labels expressing examples of the types of Spaces you can have on Gather: Virtual offices, birthday parties, university campuses, conferences, and weddings.
