Groove πŸ•ΊπŸ»

dance your way through the workday

setting the scene

  • your company’s post-pandemic hybrid work model lets you work in the office for three days a week and at your kitchen table for two πŸͺ‘
  • it’s a wfh day, and with no meetings on the calendar, you start to miss the office interactions 😒
  • you call a few friends to cure the loneliness, and suddenly you’ve lost several hours of productivity 🧸
  • hybrid work is certainly here to stay, but working alone doesn’t have to
  • this week’s company allows remote workers to connect with others while fostering productivity

in a sentence

Groove is a mobile platform that enables remote workers to connect with others and accomplish tasks

  • platform: join a video call with three other freelancers, creators, entrepreneurs, or remote workers
  • connect: (1) start the call by introducing yourself (2) work off video and motivate others in the chat (3) end by debriefing the hour’s accomplishments

bulleted version: similar to how WeWork’s coworking spaces foster interactions among solo workers and small teams, Groove connects workers in the remote world πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸ’»

due diligence

what we like

  • ⬆️ rise in at-home work: ~18% of people living in US cities work from home, which has tripled since 2019
    • we expect this trend to continue as the rising Gen Z workforce prioritizes flexibility
  • πŸ‘ improving productivity: connecting with and motivating others in a work setting boosts creativity, well-being, and productivity 
  • πŸ—£ new connections: meeting people beyond the regular social circle is proven to help people access new information and career opportunities

potential risks

  • πŸ’² no revenue yet: while Groove’s free model helps the company acquire users, will enough Groovers be jazzed about a premium product?
  • πŸ”’ compliance: any community-based platform must regulate behavior to ensure respect and user safety
  • ⌚️ aligning work schedules: what happens if a user starts a session and no other workers are active?
