What is a braindate?

C2 team

With just a few taps, you might find your business soulmate, or maybe even a new best friend, at C2 Montréal with Braindate (trust us, it happens a lot).


How Braindate works

Braindate is all about sharing knowledge and helping people learn from each other. e180 launched Braindate at C2 in 2013, and now the interactive Braindate platform is one of the best (and most popular) tools available for making the most of your experience at C2.

Each year, Braindate connects thousands of participants interested in sharing knowledge about a particular subject or topic either one-on-one or in small groups. And you can book  your braindates even before you arrive onsite by following these steps:

  1. Open Braindate on the main menu of klik, C2’s event app.
  2. Explore the topic market – it’s where all participants (including you) post the knowledge they are willing to share – and pick a topic that you want to learn about and/or create your own topic.
  3. Book your braindate and then meet in person at the Braindate Lounge!
Pro tip: Be proactive: send invitations and talk to people outside of your circles and industry. You’ll be blown away by how much collective knowledge there is in the room.


The future of learning is self-directed, collaborative and experiential — and C2 participants sure seem to agree. Last year, at C2 Montréal 2018, 1,821 one-on-one connections were made through e180’s Braindate platform, with participants generating 1,768 topics to talk about.
