🚀 What gets us going building Closer

What do you believe the world will look like if we are free to choose where we live and work while still being able to connect with our co-workers and friends as if we were in the same room?

The magnitude of how the world can change if we get this right is what gets us going every day.

⁉️ What is Closer?

Closer is a real-time communications tool that allows people to communicate and collaborate in a remote native world as if they would sit in the same room.

It runs on a dedicated screen to give users the feeling of presence and the ability to pick up on social queues. Closer offers zero friction tap-to-talk conversations. Once a conversation is established, Closer makes collaboration easy by integrating with existing tools.
