Connect around the watercooler, anywhereConnect serendipitously for virtual coffee, peer learning, birthday and work anniversary celebrations, DEI discussions, and more.
We all need friends at work. Having authentic relationships with our colleagues makes us more productive, 7x more engaged, and increases our happiness as much as a $100,000 raise [*].
Over 15,000 teams like Okta, Betterment, Gitlab, Zapier, and InVision have used Donut to make 6+ million connections among teammates across departments, office locations, and continents.
Donut makes connections across the organization, for teams of all sizes in three ways: by encouraging in-person or virtual meetups, asynchronous banter, and more festive birthday and work anniversary celebrations.

run peer mentorship programs, code review pals, and sales demo buddies
• DEI + ERGs:
