What are TribeUpp Experiences?
They're specifically designed activities set over a period of time that help you meet new people at a similar life stage, but more importantly, actually build authentic friendships, which is often the most awkward part as we get older! Yeah there's options out there to meet people... but it's getting from that awkward first encounter full of the usual small-talk, to becoming fully fledged comfortable friends that's the tricky part. And at TribeUpp, that's what we've created the solution for.
Our range of experiences help you not just meet new people, but build friendships without the apps or swiping! We take things back to basics, letting you connect with people in person over common interests, going through a unique and fun experience together, building bonds as a result. It’s the perfect way to find your new tribe, especially for the introverts and socially anxious.

Why are we doing this?
Experiencing life as Expats ourselves, we were introduced to what it's like to start from scratch in a new city, country and culture and all the challenges that brings. It's not that difficult to meet new people, but it is to actually build meaningful relationships and bonds. We found this process a little awkward as an adult, and using the apps and Facebook groups to arrange random meet ups very unnatural and strange. The initial meeting could be fun and interesting, but it made us question why these experiences often don't lead to the creation of a close friendship group like the one's we previously had in our home city and country.
Then we figured it out.
Friendships aren't supposed to be forced, but something that is naturally built over time as you all go through some form of experience together. Which is why we often form close friendships in education, work or sports teams, in an environment where there isn't so much pressure on it. At which point we also realised, this isn't just an Expat problem... this is a problem for adults in general!
With this knowledge, TribeUpp was born.
