ChessMeet is the social network for chess players that strives to make in-person chess accessible. Through ChessMeet, people may build relationships over the physical chessboard and continue the legacy of this wonderful game. We aim to increase the number of chess players in the world.

The Story

Caressa was once a competitive chess player growing up. She attended Milo
Checkmate school in the Philippines and competed in several tournaments in
Manila. A simple chess game introduced by her father had lit a fire in her.

Within a year of learning chess, she was competing at her school’s tournaments and
garnered awards. She also started to excel academically. Through chess, she
learned mental discipline and strategy.

As she played chess, she made new friends and met people from different walks of
life. She also has a lot of memories with her father and grandfather over the
chessboard. She realized that chess was another way to communicate and build
connections with other people.

She stopped playing the game for many years until she saw the Queen’s Gambit on
Netflix in 2021. Caressa’s former passion caught up with her again. The memories of
her chess legacy flooded back from childhood and a new vision for the game took
hold. Now Caressa is on a mission to redefine chess as a fun way for anyone in the
world: men, women, beginners, and the LGBTQIA+ community.

In 2022, she started a chess club in New York city while also building the ChessMeet
app with her classmates from business school. The ChessMeet app and community
are dedicated to her father.
