Startup Roundup – 22nd March

GDI is constantly on the lookout for new players, disruptive business models, and innovative technologies in the online dating market.

This Startup Roundup is presented in partnership with The Social Discovery Group, who are currently eager to connect with startups in the social discovery and online dating space.

Fox Hunters Club – Find your fox: This new dating app is for singles looking for courtship, rather than hookups or penpals. Its perfect for those who know what they want and are ready for something real.

Bustr – For plus-size singles: This platform helps connect BBW (big beautiful women), BHM (big handsome men), and their admirers.

Bokay – Slow the swipe: Now live in Toronto, Bokay encourages users to discover others in a thoughtful way, rather than a rapid swipe. A potential match’s photos are initially blurred, but as you read through their profile, their image gradually becomes clear.

In Case You Missed It! Here’s last week’s Startup Roundup:

LovPipo – Discover love, connect with purpose: LovPipo is a Singaporean company which operates a matchmaking service, dating app, and dating coaching programme. Its mission is to to promote happiness through marriage.

TruuBlue – Where progressives meet: TruuBlue is a dating app for singles who define themselves as socially progressive. TruuBlue users are invited to rank their own opinions on social issues, ranging from ‘Not Very Passionate’ to ‘Extremely Passionate’.

Orra – AI-driven matchmaking app: Under development, this platform promises to be the “world’s most advanced AI-driven matchmaking service”. Looking to separate itself from swipe-based dating apps, Orra will harness gamification & AI to help foster meaningful connections.
