Our story

After grad, our co-founders noticed they were having many conversations with alumni reminiscing about campus life. They realised that unlike hall, there wasn't much of a young adult community in their neighbourhoods and few opportunities for young people who live in the same area to connect meaningfully. They would hear common narratives like, "my parents know the neighbours, my grandparents do, but I don't" or "my estate very old no other young people".

​

Thus, came the inspiration for Friendzone!

 

Bringing together their experience in community building, communications and facilitation, they began designing and hosting IRL neighbourhood gatherings to combat social isolation and disconnectedness, and bring the diversity of young people together!

 

Now, because of COVID-19, they have carried that same heart to connect communities online!

​

The Friendzone Team believes that everyone has something to offer and receive, and Singapore is full of interesting people that just haven't met yet.
