About Orbit

In 2017 Orbit launched an experiment to help create valuable social and professional connections with others nearby.

Orbit was an easy and fun way to connect with the world around you — see if your friends are nearby and available to meet, and discover interesting new people at the places you visit and events you attend.

With over 20,000 registrations in its first two weeks, we gleaned a valuable insight into what users wanted and where the market opportunity was.

In 2018 the idea was pivoted to focus on professional networking.

Our Team

Orbit was founded by Oliver Waters and Steven Waterfall in May 2017 and was launched in September 2017.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help people connect with each other and the world around them by building a meaningful network of open communities centred around location.
