Connecting with people like "BOOM"

Welcome! We are in the process of building out our MVP platform. Swurl is a new networking space where tech, creative, and wellness experts of all levels (introverted and extroverted) can connect in a friendly and safe environment fostering a feeling of confidence, inspiration, and direction.

Add me to the waitlist!

Who is this platform for?

Leaders and tech professionals

Individuals who have worked in tech for a while and are tired and bored of the corporate networking structure and hope to connect with people at a deeper level in a more creative setting, share their experience, and potentially start or grow their own businesses

Creative thinkers in transition

Individuals who have grown out of their current roles in tech or personally have experienced an important change and want to explore other spaces, collaborate with new people, but aren't quite sure where to start and who to reach out to

College and high school graduates curious about tech and creative fields

Individuals who just left the world of education and want to connect with real professionals in the field and potentially find some opportunities, get feedback on direction and their resumes/portfolios/skills


Individuals who are looking to invest in exciting projects created by outside the box, innovative, and empathetic thinkers who have some great ideas

Life & Career Coaches

Individuals who are vetted coaches and want to find customers who would benefit from some quality guidance

Health Practitioners

Individuals who specialize in mental and physical health, who want to provide support to stressed out, burnt out, depressed tech people and graduates

There is no correct or incorrect path, but either way the process should be interesting

Our mission is to create a gamified web platform where it is actually fun to find like-minded people. The idea is to network based on interests and values. The aim is to remove the stigma of "corporate" in networking.

Tech people are constantly in transition, they are hungry to learn and to be inspired. The format of social media is sometimes overwhelming with constant feeds and endless notifications. Our goal is to provide an elegant and peaceful space where being in transition and evolving as a professional and a newbie is seen as normal and exciting. We will also provide a community of accessible and vetted tech professionals who will serve as thought leaders and coaches along the way.

We see a world where tech spaces feel human and approachable.

I am a Product designer from South Korea, currently working for a Payroll company in NYC. I grew up in India through high school before I moved to the US for college. This helped me understand different cultures and learn to adapt quickly wherever I am. My background is in front-end dev, but when I learned that a seamless experience comes with an entire process of research and design, I realized I wanted to be the person who creates products that people love with ease of use. That’s how I ended up as a Product designer. I worked on many redesign projects such as dashboards, and various people management tools. I am passionate about food, gaming, and continuous growth opportunities.
