What makes Trova unique?

People in a Trova Community already have something in common (apartment building, university, workplace, etc.). We are reducing the degree of separation between users which makes engaging much easier. Our goal has and always will be to help people convert online connections to in-person friendships.

Bridging the gap between technology and community

Inspired by everyday life

At 26, I changed careers and moved out of state. I chose to live in a large (300 person) multi-unit apartment community with a pool, gym, and a friendly staff that knew me by name. I had hundreds of  connections on Facebook and LinkedIn. Despite being surrounded by people both physically and virtually, I found it hard to build a new social circle.

I looked for ways to meet people but the options were limited. I wanted something that was quick and easy that would help start the conversation with someone new. I couldn't find a solution that appealed to me, so I decided to build my own. The result is Trova.​

Meet the team!
