Ignite Your Social Life

No swiping. No trying to meet people online. All in-person, authentic connections.

Spark New Friendships
  • Get Personal

    After signing up, you'll tell us about your interests, availability, things you look for in friends, and more. Based on your answers, we'll set you up in small groups with people we think you'll like!

  • Get Matched

    Twice a month, we'll set you up with constantly rotating groups of ~5 friends. We'll select a place for drinks, coffee, or another activity that's in a central location for all of you, at a time that fits your schedule.

  • Get Together

    Meet with your different groups and watch the sparks fly! After each social, you can tell us who enjoyed meeting, so we can keep refining your groups. You'll meet new people constantly, in a personal setting, allowing you to find those who you want to keep around long term!

Who can participate?

Right now our membership is open to ages 21-29, in the Bay Area (and LA starting July 1st!). We started this specifically for this age group after talking with hundreds of recent grads and young professionals and realizing that a lot of people struggle to meet new people at this age. With so many people moving somewhere new to start a career, or having their friends move away, it's a time where we could all use some extra community! If you're outside of the Bay, put your name down. here, and when we get enough interest from your city we'll come there next!

Can I be part of the membership if I'm on the outskirts of the Bay or LA suburbs?

Yes, you certainly can. However, you may have to drive a bit further. We will select locations close to the majority of the group, so if you're outside of the Bay or on an outer city then you will likely have to commute to where the rest of the group is. If you're outside of the LA or Bay Areas all together, put your name down here so we can expand to your city next!

How do you match groups?

Right after signing up you'll take a survey with some of your interests, availability, things you look for in friends, and more. From there we consider a range of different things to match groups. After attending socials, you can also tell us who enjoyed meeting, so we can improve your matches for future.

What happens after I sign up?

Right after signing up you'll take our matching survey, and then you'll receive your social invites on the 1st and 15th of the month. From there, you'll meet with your different groups throughout the month, and get more invites the following month!

The Spark

Social Spark was started by a team of Cal Poly, SLO class of 2023 (and 2024) grads, so we love going to socials ourselves too. We spent months talking to hundreds of of people in their 20s, and realized how it can be a pretty lonely time, w/o many great ways to meet people. We'd love to meet you and answer any q's you have, or just get to know you and talk about life!
