Lunchcruit Builds Professional Connections Through Sit-Down Meals

Lunchcruit is the latest 'dating app' that focuses specifically on startup networking. It encourages people to make more professional connections over a free meal -- yes, free. Working similarly to Ok Cupid and Tinder, the startup networking app lets people pick their field of expertise and city to better match them up with companies of interest. From there, a representative from the company will decide if the person is something they're interested in, setting them up with a free lunch.

Startup networking is made easier and more fun through Lunchcruit, which essentially positions itself against other recruiting opportunities such on LinkedIn. The company reveals, "With pricing, we’re still experimenting. $399 a month for quality candidates isn’t that far fetched when you consider a single LinkedIn job posting costs $495. As long as we can guarantee quality and a constant stream of talent it’s actually a great deal."
