The problem of urban isolation is steadily increasing.
We strongly believe that can be combated by creating a sense of belonging and community.
Having spent a lot of time understanding what the word “Community” means to each of us, we curate our gatherings and experiences based on our insights.
With all our experiences, we make sure that the key factor is meeting and talking to people and this enables bonding and we have the privilege of watching strangers become friends.
We find that real connections are being made at our experiences, and we’re learning and growing slowly, but steadily.
All of our experiences are centered around the idea of good, clean, fun!
That Extra Step was started by 3 people in a living room, but unlike other “start-up” journeys, our story began with us tossing a Frisbee in a park together.
We were trying to find avenues to do more things “offline”, we found that there are fewer and fewer spaces in the city that enabled people to have good, clean fun that didn’t involve alcohol.
With our cities growing rapidly, there is a growing sense of urban isolation. People are spending more time connecting with friends online rather than sitting across from each other.
Simply put, we’re all leading complicated urban lives with no real avenues for connecting with people and creating friendships.
