    Why

    Change is happening.

    The world has hit the upward slope on the exponential rate of change curve & humanity is going to have some of it's biggest challenges/changes in it's history over the upcoming decades.
    From AI & automation, to extended life spans, to global warming, to globalization to interplanetary colonization… society is going to have to adapt drastically and quickly in order to keep up with these changes.
    We want to help shape these changes, to make them positive and to create a world beyond scarcity.

    How

    By doing something we do every day. Eat dinner.

    Sharing a meal with someone is intimate & is a powerful way to build a relationship.
    Deep, intentional conversation allows you to get to really know someone much faster.
    The format and rules of the Beyond Dinner have been designed following behavior psychology & relationship development science to create deep connections and discussions immediately.

    Who
