About David

David Good had his software development career taken away from him by a car accident and a

subsequent illness.

To find a new purpose and to give renewed meaning to his life, David founded the non-partisan,

not-for-profit International Friend Connection (IFC) in 2014, a community dedicated to helping

people overcome social anxiety through online and in-person events.

Today, the IFC has forty-seven chapters and thirty-five thousand members in cities all over the

world through the Meetup Platform. For his work in building such a diverse, inclusive, and

supportive community, David was appointed by MeetUp CEO David Siegel as the founding

brand ambassador for Meetup in 2023.

After helping thousands of people beat social anxiety, David Good founded “The Friend

Magnet,” a six-week program designed to help those with social anxiety overcome their

condition by developing psychological resilience, a growth mindset, emotional intelligence, and

real-life social skills.

Over the past nine years, his endeavors have been acknowledged with three medals from the

President of the United States and was named a Point of Light award winner by the Points of

Light Foundation, established by former President George H.W. Bush. David’s passion for

solving the social isolation and loneliness crisis continues to this day, inspired by a goal of

helping connect one million people over the next ten years.
