Say Allo is reinventing dating discovery to make the experience of connecting very real and intelligent, starting from a baseline of compatibility. Partnering with Dr. Brian Shaw, PhD, an original developer of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Say Allo has raised $1M in its seed round and is now successfully connecting singles in cities throughout the US and Canada.
The GDI London Conference takes place on Thursday 26th September 2019 at the Leonardo Royal Hotel in St Paul’s.
Speaker sessions run from 10am – 5pm (lunch is included), and the conference is followed by an evening of socialising at the autumn edition of GDI Dating Drinks, held in association with HubStars and Scamalytics.
HubStars has been providing both ready to promote dating brands and bespoke white label online dating solutions since 2005. Their platform caters for over 8 million dating customers and bills in 9 different currencies worldwide, offering round the clock support in any timezone.
Scamalytics maintain the largest shared anti-fraud database dedicated to the online dating industry. They use cutting edge machine learning techniques to allow moderation of scammers in real time, helping sites to remove bad actors and improve their reputation.
