THE JOURNEY OF
THE SERENDIPITY MACHINE

2007

IT ALL STARTS WITH SEATS2MEET

 S2M is founded as places where people are welcome to co-work for social capital and rent meeting spaces when needed. At a S2M location people are always open to meet each other, share knowledge and help everyone grow.

S2M IS A BIG SUCCESS

In no time hundreds of people joined.

2012

S2M STARTS CONNECTING

 In the online booking system S2M integrates a tool that allows people to see who is in the same location at the same time with what kind of knowledge.

SOCIAL CAPITAL

Be open and share knowledge, by cultivating this the locations and the people become more successful.

2013

THE SERENDIPITY MACHINE IS BORN

S2M goes beyond and starts connecting people online based on their knowledge.

2015

SERENDIPITY AT S2M LOCATIONS IS VALIDATED TWICE BY THE ERASMUS UNIVERSITY

This research shows us 34 per cent of 500 respondents saying they had been able to improve their own products and services thanks to other people’s input. That’s the power of Serendipity and Social Capital.

TSM IS NOW USING AI

S2M introduces an AI algorithm to the Serendipity Machine making the connections even more relevant.

2016

COOL SPOTS TO BE

You can find all TSM locations in this map, which S2M released to highlight all cool spots to work and meet people. Feel free to drop a pin at the map if you think that spot is a cool spot for The Serendipity Machine.

2017

THE SERENDIPITY MACHINE IS GOING SOLO

The Serendipity Machine is the accelerator of Social Capital by doing it’s magic. We decided to spread that magic. Every existing location can sign up and unlock their TSM to become a relevant place for people.

AND THERE IT IS: OUR BRAND NEW LOGO

With this major update: a new strategy, website and magazine we thought it’s time for a new logo as well. It’s a co-created logo, read here all about this journey.

APP IS READY TO USE

In May we launched our IOS and Android app to use for people to check in on every location with The Serendipity Machine as a virtual layer. By checking in they will be matched to other people on the spot who might be very relevant for them. Let the magic happen
