Stumble is a digital concept from the research and ideation phase of my thesis project, Teambuilding America. It seeks to directly counter division by mixing and matching unlike people.
Stumble is a networking app for people who feel stuck and isolated, matching users who are incredibly similar but unlikely to meet, or dissimilar but very likely to meet.
After matching, more activities and games become available that will help the two people learn a bit more about each other. From there they align on a passion, set a goal, and track their cumulative progress toward that goal. Like me and Jonah, with our goal of a combined number of tutoring hours.
The Stumble campaign targets places where barriers are lower to meeting with strangers, like bars, coffee shops, and public activity places.
