Hyped Is Tinder Meets LinkedIn for Hipsters


Hyped is a new speed networking app that combines the swipe features of Tinder with the networking library of LinkedIn.

However Hyped is aimed exclusively at hipster professionals.

Users can sift through a collection of local potential business contacts, swiping left or right depending on whether they want to connect or not.

If both users swipe right, they can start communicating and plan to meet in person.


Hyped’s Managing Director Michael Suppo said: “We don’t believe in business, we believe in people. And this is an app for cool people to meet equals, both locally and worldwide.”

The self-proclaimed “Tinder for Business” was created by mobile application company Fruit Inc, and launched on April 15.

Fruit Inc, which was founded by Suppo, previously released ephemeral messaging app Slingshot Chat, and Whatchat.
