It’s all about connections – That’s why we are here as human beings. It’s what matters. It’s essential.
That’s why Gauss is here.
We see a future where technology helps accelerate long lasting real-life face to face connections for us all. We want to improve the world by helping people better discover and create new meaningful connections.
We aim to leverage the best of the online world to enhance the best of the offline world.
Here’s some people much smarter than ourselves articulating why connections matter:
“[…] connection is why we are here. It’s what gives purpose and meaning to our lives. […] What we know is that connection, the ability to feel connected, is neuro-biologically how we’re wired. That’s why we’re here.”
– Dr. Brené Brown (@brenebrown), Research Professor University of Houston, TX
“[…]community exists inside of you. Inside of everyone of us lives this idea of community. And where we go – our community goes.[…] […]There are many pieces of me. So wherever I go, I’m going to look for things that I identify with; People who I can identify with. That’s where community is.[…]”

“Because I think social networks are fundamentally related to goodness. And what I think the world needs now, is more connections.”
– Nicholas Christakis (@connected_book), author of “Connected”
