We don’t just host online experiences…
Let me tell you about us
HOW IT STARTED
Hi! I’m Ben, and I started SocialTable because meeting new people is hard. Despite countless apps and websites designed for “connection”—I found myself struggling to make genuine connections.
So, I decided to host a few gatherings in a fun, chilled out and totally- not-awkward way. The idea was a hit…and my events quickly became underground favorites with people I hadn’t even met before…and soon, I was holding weekly group dinners in epic restaurants across the country.
WITH OUR POWERS COMBINED
I dreamt of expanding SocialTable, so that more guests could experience the magic for themselves. I joined an Executive MBA program—where the fates introduced me to my now co-founder, Wolfgang.
Immediately, I could tell Wolfgang had the operational knowledge to help realize my ambitious visions for SocialTable. The funny part is, our EMBA program is fully virtual, and so we realized the untapped potential and power of connecting virtually.
TAKING IT ONLINE
The pandemic changed everything. As the population sheltered-in-place, we put our social dining model on hold. But, it wasn’t long before Wolfgang and I realized society’s need for connection was getting stronger—but with nothing virtual available to help folks share, learn, and laugh out loud, it was a dire situation.
So…we built our Digital Wine-Down™ to help fill that void. So now, those times you can’t join us for a drink at the table, we bring the “table” to you—aka bottles to your doorstep and a virtual room full of curated strangers.
