Heading out for lunch but no one’s available at the office? At a conference and want to network over lunch? Get LunchMeet mobile app and never dine alone.
Inspired by the best-selling book “Never Eat Alone” and built using the LinkedIn API, LunchMeet allows for meaningful, face-to-face networking wherever you are, whenever you are available.

- Search for other professionals in your area who are also available within the same timeslot
- Invite them to a lunchmeet!
When you sign into the app with your LinkedIn account, you can set up one-time or recurring slots for when you’ll be available to meet up.
You have the option to announce your availability on your LinkedIn status, choose meeting venues from the in-app map, and automatically port meeting details to your calendar.
Can’t find a match? LunchMeet provides you with the opportunity to invite your LinkedIn contacts directly.
So next time you’re free for a bite or want to network at a conference over lunch, use LunchMeet to let your LinkedIn contacts know that you’re available.
