  • OKPanda: Language learning through gamification
  • UpandOutInsidersClub: You pay $20 each month and get 2 tickets to new SF events. Works as a pre-commitment to doing something new in the city.

  • Hinge: Provides a limited number of people per day, preventing the constant FMO that you may miss out on a soulmate.
  • Yerdle: Sharing economy w/ attempts at their own currency. They are going down the path of getting people to think about re-use at the point of purchase.

And a list would not be complete without something we DIDN’T like. But, instead of us saying it, we’ll let John Oliver tell you the horrors of payday lenders.
