How It Works

Just create a Slack channel and invite the right people—Donut takes care of the rest. Introduce teammates for a variety of purposes, from casual coffees to 1:1s with the CEO.

Strengthen Relationships + Collaboration

Introduce teammates who might not know each other via direct message, and encourage them to meet or chat remotely.


Build Bonds Across Departments or Distances

Engineering, meet marketing. SF, meet Dublin. Create authentic relationships by ensuring that teammates from different departments or locations get to know each other.


Make Mergers a Success

Bring brand new teammates together for productive conversations that help them acclimate—and even form friendships.


Run a Lottery Program

Pick lucky winners out of a channel to go to a special lunch on the company, have a coffee break with the CEO, or to volunteer for programming like lunch-and-learns.
