  1. VirtualCoffee will randomly pair people from selected channels and encourage them to meet up for lunch, snacks, or even a virtual coffee!
  2. Break silos and spark conversations across distances and departments. Build connections up the fun factor every time you catch up with peers.
  3. Discover new things such as shared interests, hobbies, and more. Make getting to know each other easy and fun.
