MARIE CLAIRE - Sep 18 - Braindate is a matchmaking app for professionals used at conferences to help people connect. Users can choose between two types of Braindate: a 30-minute one-on-one or a 45-minute group session involving up to four people. The app was launched by a Canadian tech company called e180 in 2013. Rather than existing as a stand-alone app that people need to download, Braindate is integrated into the main event's app. Since 2017, it has been used at ~200 events across Australia, Europe, the Middle East and North America.
