Professional Matchmaking,
without the Timewasting.

You'll never search again.

It's Your Attention. Reclaim It.

Fed up with today's attention-based, all-hustle, low-trust professional environment?

Save your attention for what matters: meaningful collaboration.

Who Is ONO Good For?

Everyone would benefit from more collaboration and less wasted time. But we think ONO will be especially useful for:

Special Interest Groups

By leveraging existing members' directories, ONO can add membership value and strengthen community for
chambers of commerce, business associations, research consortiums, and trade unions.

Academic Institutions

ONO fuels research and collaboration, both internal and external, by leveraging the network strengths of student societies, alumni associations, research groups, and public-private partnerships.

Conferences

Think of ONO as a value-added feature for conference-goers, helping them to maximize opportunity by understanding the purpose and intent of attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and vendors.

Business & Ventures

Regardless of industry, ONO can help companies scale by connecting them to high-value partners and resources, including co-founders, business partners.

What's In
A Name?

What's In A Name?

We wanted a name that was both human and imbued with possibility. That’s when we came across the Japanese surname Ōno (pronounced “oh-no”) which translates as “large field”.

We see the ONO platform as a large field of opportunity to achieve a shared outcome by bringing together diverse skills and resources in support of impactful global projects.

All Your Questions Answered

How much information do I need to provide?

Behold, the humble accordion arrow. In the wild, it keeps to itself. When provoked, it will reveal a dangerous amount of information.

ONO will ask you to enter your work history, highlight your uniqueness using tags, and complete a purpose pillar questionnaire at signup. It will then be guided by your intent, your behavior on the platform, and any additional information you add to your profile. ONO does not claw data from other platforms. All information is user actioned.

How accurate are the matches?

Behold, the humble accordion arrow. In the wild, it keeps to itself. When provoked, it will reveal a dangerous amount of information.

ONO's matching engine improves as you use the platform. It starts with demographic and psychographic insights collected at signup, then machine learning goes into action as you vet each match for relevance. You will always control which matches you accept, but the engine does the hard work of suggesting matches for you.

What is a purpose pillar?

Behold, the humble accordion arrow. In the wild, it keeps to itself. When provoked, it will reveal a dangerous amount of information.

ONO distills purpose into four categories called purpose pillars: thinker, planner, doer, donor. These take into account factors like skills, resources, and expertise. Other platforms label users by job title, but ONO measures users by the purpose they bring to the platform and their professional lives.

How do I build my network?

Behold, the humble accordion arrow. In the wild, it keeps to itself. When provoked, it will reveal a dangerous amount of information.

ONO populates your dashboard with suggested matches, which you can simply swipe to save or dismiss. Unlike other social platforms where connections have little value, ONO lets you build circles or groups of matches that meet a specific need. These communicate to the matching engine the importance of each match to you.

Why do I have to announce my Intent?

Behold, the humble accordion arrow. In the wild, it keeps to itself. When provoked, it will reveal a dangerous amount of information.

Traditional social platforms rarely consider user intent, which makes finding the right partners a hit-and-miss experience. With ONO, your real-time Intent is a simple way to let other users know if you're seeking or offering support. The matching engine also uses your Intent to find other users with similar criteria and commitment levels.

I'm a recruiter. How can I fill a position with ONO?

Behold, the humble accordion arrow. In the wild, it keeps to itself. When provoked, it will reveal a dangerous amount of information.

ONO is not designed to be a recruitment platform. It works by connecting opportunities at the source through matching criteria, defined goals, and stated intent. However, we will look to introduce a feature to pitch projects or announce open positions in a later release.

Where is my data stored?

Behold, the humble accordion arrow. In the wild, it keeps to itself. When provoked, it will reveal a dangerous amount of information.

User data collected through the platform is stored on the cloud. A report of what ONO collects about you is easily accessible upon request.

Can I connect my LinkedIn profile with ONO?

Behold, the humble accordion arrow. In the wild, it keeps to itself. When provoked, it will reveal a dangerous amount of information.

Unfortunately, ONO doesn't connect with external platforms. That's one way we protect your data.

How do I start using ONO?

Behold, the humble accordion arrow. In the wild, it keeps to itself. When provoked, it will reveal a dangerous amount of information.

Our alpha test release is scheduled for launch in March 2022. To receive an invitation, simply sign up using this form.

How It Started

When Dwayne Grech moved to a new country, he faced common problems as many of us. How to avoid wasting time reaching out to the wrong people. How to network professionally so the right partners and opportunities come to you, instead of you searching for them.

Dwayne gathered together some tech-minded friends and they set out to build the solution. Which turns out to be, you’ve guessed it, ONO. 

Watch the demo video below in which Dwayne talks about some of the features being added to ONO and the benefits users can expect.
