About



This Kickstarter campaign is available in francais and espanol.

NO REGRETS  |  Will you look back on your life and wish you spent more time on social media? Or will you wish you met more interesting people and had more meaningful experiences? 

JUMP IN  |  It's intimidating meeting someone new. But our best friends and experiences are the result of taking the first step. Not a dating app, Convers8 connects you with real people. No pressure. No cost.

EXPAND YOUR WORLD  |  Everyone has a different reason for finding an interesting conversation. It's a way to learn, teach, heal, laugh, grow, share and to break free from the monotony of daily life...and do something real. 

BE BETTER  |  People who have regular, meaningful social interaction...

  • Are 2.4x less likely to have heart disease
  • Have increased brain function
  • Live 10 years longer than their lonely counterparts
  • Are more confident

STOP LIMITING YOURSELF  |  Why do we sit by ourselves scrolling endlessly through empty newsfeeds instead of meeting interesting people face-to-face? 

DON'T GIVE UP  |  While there are countless apps to connect us with friends online and even more apps to connect us with a complete stranger for a physical relationship, there isn't anything to connect us with people who work in the same building, study in the same field, or live just around the corner?

BE HUMAN AGAIN  |  This is why we created Convers8. We want to meet people like you to talk about something that actually matters for a change. Maybe we won't see eye-to-eye, but we'll have a real, interesting, and healthy experience to share from it. 

We made Convers8 for ourselves, but we hope you'll come to see it as your app as much as it is ours.

HOW IT WORKS  |  Convers8 is (currently) an easy-to-use mobile app that helps people connect for meaningful conversations. The app shows you other people nearby (or on the other side of the world) looking for the same thing.   

JOIN THE CONVERSATION  |  You can search for conversations near you by location. Or you can search based on a topic. Our matching algorithm will help you find people around the corner (or in another country if you want) who share your interests. 

START THE CONVERSATION   |   Didn't find what you were looking for? Then propose a conversation for others to join. 

STAY CONNECTED  |  There are in-app chat and messaging features to communicate with your new conversation partners before and after your meeting.  There's also a newsfeed that keeps you connected to your new community and informed about upcoming events in your area.

Other Features:

  •  Number of Attendees: Host or attend larger group meetings based around a common topic, for free. You simply decide how many people you want in your conversation.
  •  Debate: If you love to argue and debate or want to hear an opposing view, then the debate feature is going to be a perfect fit for you.
  •  Travel: Convers8 is already available in English in dozens of countries, so you can meet new people when you are traveling or staying home.

READY! We have been working on this app for over a year, using our own money to develop Convers8 into more than just an idea and provide you with something special the moment you open it.   

SET! From now on, we want to accelerate the app's development to make it more useful and more practical. We want Convers8 to be something you look forward to for your lunch break, drinks after work, or on the weekend. We want to give you the opportunity to have an interesting conversation you'll remember anytime you want.

GO! We have ideas for some of the next generation features but we lack the financial resources to carry out this mission as quickly as we'd like. We don't want you - our customers - to have to wait. We want Convers8 to be your's, which is why you get voting rights to help us make critical decisions on which features we focus on next and how we can make it better. 

We have a variety of reward levels for this campaign and we hope you'll enjoy each one of them. Here's a quick explanation of what's being offered:

  •  Voting Rights - We want to put more control in your hands. To do that, we're giving you voting rights to help us decide which features to work on next. 
  •  Icons - Depending on your level of support, we'll create a special icon that will accompany your Convers8 username for the life of the app to show our appreciation. 

 This is how we'll spend your contributions:

Not able to help us financially?  

  •  Use Convers8 and have a blast changing the way you spend your time by having more interesting experiences. 
  •  Tell everyone by sharing Convers8 with your friends, family, strangers at the store, and whoever else is bored with the status quo.
  •  Review Convers8 in the App Store to give us a boost and get the app in front of new people.
  •  Share Convers8 on Social Media and this Kickstarter campaign (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn)! 

If you share on social media, we'll grant you another vote for our new features. Email us a screenshot of what you shared on social media to support@convers8inc.com and we'll add you to our voting list as we prepare new features for development.

Risks and challenges

STUFFY COMFORT ZONES | Let's face it...talking to someone else can be intimidating. We're all limited by some sort of comfort zone. Some have smaller zones than others. We need maximum and positive interactions so people with smaller comfort zones feel safe breaking out.

SPREAD THE WORD | The greatest risk is not getting the app into enough people's hands. That's why some of the money you generously provide will go to advertising the app to more people so each time you open it up, you'll have a bunch of conversations to choose from!

BUILDING NEW FUNCTIONS | New features and some improvements are harder and more costly than others. This is why we're giving YOU voting rights to help us build out only the features that you want!

    You're the best...literally!

    For your kindness, you'll get a couple of items. First, you'll get a hand-painted (by the founder of your choice), personalized mug to show off to your friends and co-workers (and prove the founding team's undying love and appreciation for you). 'Is it also a great conversation starter?' you ask. You bet!

    You'll also get a special icon next to your username for the life of the app.

    Plus...you get EVERYTHING from the previous reward levels such as the Conversation Starter Kit, three posts into the C8 newsfeed, voting rights, and a 'Thank You' email from the team!

    DEVELOPER LEVEL

    Alright...this level is a little different. We're letting you behind the curtain.

    At this tier, you'll decide what feature you'd like us to develop next. Unlike other tiers, though, you're not voting for a feature that we already proposed...you're choosing the feature yourself (as long as it conforms to the Convers8 terms and conditions and is aligned with the Convers8 mission).

    Basically, if it can be developed for $500, we'll build it.

    Don't worry though, because you're still getting the sweet personalized mug from the founders, the Conversation Starter Kit, 3 questions in the Newsfeed, and Thank You email.

    Includes:
    • You choose the next-level feature ($500 value) for development!
    • You also get EVERYTHING from the previous level!

    THE FUTURE OF C8 LEVEL

    You've reach the top! In this case, you're truly in the development seat and able to decide what special feature we build next, as long as it can be developed for $5,000 and, of course, conforms to C8's terms and conditions and mission.

    You decide what next-level features and capabilities we create. You tell us how to make people's lives better.

    To do this, we'll be in close coordination with you along the way to make sure we're building this feature to your specs, so get ready for some interesting conversations with the founders.

    And...obviously...you get EVERYTHING from the previous levels.

    Includes:
    • You choose the next-level feature ($5K value) for development!
    • You also get EVERYTHING from the previous level!
