Review of Lunchclub
In this COVID time, LunchClub has been great to network to meet other high-caliber people. I've been able to meet a number of great people; and found several founders to guest on my podcast (The Savvy Founder). As time has gone on there is noticeable higher number of 'taker' individuals. Takers are people that try to sell me services no matter my situation. (and incidentally certain cultures, particularly those selling outsourced IT and Business services, seem to have a higher number of sales people takers - ). This means I find value in about half the conversations. And the other half not so much. I will say LunchClubs recent push to lean into the network effect and control everything is off putting. I would wish LunchClub stick to facilitating great connections. I don't like that they want to control the video (their product sucks compared to zoom) I don't like that they are trying to build a CRM/Closed discussion system; I already have my own system for managing conversations and connections - I don't need another tool. LinkedIn screwed up the conversations. LunchClub seems to be screwing it up so they can sell our data. Like all social networking systems - caveat emptor. For now it still adds good value. I don't know for how long that will be true.

Lunchclub was quite good till it dogfooded the meeting invite, direct chat between the people via email, and to some degree the video platform (as most others are better on mobile). Flake rate is much higher now because such basic transparency & trust factors are worse. They've also missed out on the opportunity to test whether their matchmaking is useful via post-match NPS. A lot of flakes are simply bad matches LC never checked back in on and passively condones. LC is also a much better experience if you are based in a metro, and is less useful if you are nomadic or in a rural area as you will have to spend points to speak with people in another area. This makes the tool less productive for nomads who may visit another city the following week.

I am so very tempted to try this but SO MANY people say they are spamming your contacts. I cant even believe GOOGLE lets that happen any more. I have gone to so much trouble to reducing spam and now this service wants to infuriate our business contacts? Who is up for mimicking them WITHOUT crapping on every one's privacy??

LunchClub is a corrupt and sleazy fraud. They go into your contacts and spam people pretending to be you. They did this to me, causing me to receive pissed off emails from people I barely know but had in my contacts. LunchClub is rightfully headed to the DEADPOOL where they belong. Good idea, but CORRUPT people behind it.
