Our mission is to enhance human potential through connection

Our story

We’ve always believed that every conversation has the potential to be life-changing, and that the best way to learn is from each other. This led us to create the world’s first job shadowing marketplace in 2018, enabling unprecedented peer-to-peer connections across companies and industries. 

As community managers, we experienced first hand the challenges of bringing people together, from matching, to scheduling, to gathering feedback. We obsessed over how to engineer the perfect connection.

As connectivity and opportunities within our community grew, so did our vision. We realized our impact could benefit not just our members, but communities worldwide. 

Guided by two years of insights, Orbiit was born. Just as gravity brings objects into orbit, humanity has relied on communities for connection and support since the beginning of time. 

In today’s world, where a sense of belonging is as crucial as ever, we’re grateful to live our purpose of elevating the happiness, productivity and wellbeing of your communities. 

Onwards and upwards,

Bilyana Freye and Luuk Derksen, Co-Founders

Our values drive our mission

Interconnection

Communities give us the support and belonging we need to thrive. Connecting with other members allows us to experience these benefits on a deeper level.

Curiosity

Whether it’s looking for better ways to do something or stepping outside of your comfort zone, we believe in the power of curiosity to build knowledge.

Authenticity

When real people share their wins, losses and lessons with each other, vulnerability becomes a superpower for learning.

Fearlessness

Growth requires taking risks, putting yourself out there, and giving and asking for help.

Tenacity

Successful people continually improve themselves by recognizing the boundless potential in their everyday interactions.

Inclusion

Valuing inclusivity means building a team and product that weigh the opinions and experiences of everyone equally in order to expand perspectives.
