Who we are

Sphere aims to connect people together, wherever they may be. We’ve found that people already to go to plenty of events with a networking aim, but the problem is that usually there are too many people and too little time to find great connections.

That’s why we developed our own algorithm, which matches people based on mutual professional interests. Our app uses the algorithm to optimize the networking experience, open to anybody to use. We can even custom make an app to tailor to the needs of any kind of organization.

Founded in 2013, we are now based in both Paris and Strasbourg in France. We also have representatives around the world, including the United States, Spain and Portugal.
