Meet awesome professionals, alumni and others near you. is one of those unique websites with full of custom-built features. It allows users to meet similar users near-by through Business Lunches. LetsLunch provides users with a host of features ranging from searching for people with an advanced search filter to sending private messages or requesting lunches with interesting people.

The most interesting part is when users simply make the site know their availability for next 10 business days & the site would automagically setup lunch with a new person whom the user would be interested to have lunch with.

With Groups, LetsLunch allows mass interaction. One could setup group-lunches with a specific set of members or leave it to the site to invite right people for the lunch. There are a tons of upcoming features planned / being developed, that would very well make the site one of it’s kind in the days to come.
