Co-founded by three-time startup entrepreneur Jocelyn Loo and headquartered in Los Angeles, ICBRKR (“icebreaker”) is an innovative new social networking app that is changing the way people connect not just online, but while out in the real world. ICBRKR launched in 2017 at Art Basel in Miami and is now pushing across major cities throughout America, including Los Angeles, New York, Miami, San Francisco, Austin, and Las Vegas with more to come.
Aimed to get people connected in real time and wherever they may roam, ICBRKR curates high-quality events, adventures, and activities. Scroll through the best concerts, newest restaurants, and trendiest activities, and use the app like a personal social calendar. Users can see who in the ICBRKR community is attending the same events as them, making it easy to connect with people who have shared interests.
“Through matching people with common interests and activities, in real-time, we create a community of spontaneous socializers that meet and mingle in the curated ICBRKR community,” says Loo, co-founder & CEO of ICBRKR.
ICBRKR is perfect to use when traveling, as it finds the best things to do in major cities. Love music? Hit up the coolest techno warehouse party, or have a cultured night at the opera. Are you a foodie? ICBRKR will show you the best restaurants and bars the city has to offer. Or maybe you’re interested in art? Along with classic attractions like the MoMA in NYC or The Broad in LA, ICBRKR will show you galleries that may be off the beaten path.
ICBRKR can also help users find their museum companion or concert buddy. Using geolocation, ICBRKR shows users people near them who share the same passions and interests. ICBRKR profiles even show information from other apps like Spotify, Instagram, and LinkedIn to help users meet people who match their lifestyle. Users can connect through the app, or meet offline at the events and activities, creating community and forging relationships in real life.

By getting rid of the news feeds, status updates, and sometimes overbearing advertising that has caused many millennial users to leave Facebook behind, ICBRKR gives users a break from the clutter and offers a fresh and easy platform that caters to forging real connections. “So many apps replicate existing social media sites and look to build a network based on where users are already spending their time,” Loo says. ICBRKR aims to streamline the user experience to get people into the real world faster. The app is designed to create small, active communities of users in its active regions.
