For the latest instalment of our video interview series, GDI met up with on-demand dating app rendeevoo on a rainy day in Tower Hill, London.
We chatted to George Christoforakis, the co-founder of rendeevoo, an app that wants to revolutionise the way dating services match up singles.
Christoforakis speaks about how rendeevoo is somewhat of a reaction to the overbearing presence of technology in our daily lives, and the “decade of false promises” that singles have been sold by dating companies over the past decade.
To try and shake up these old models, rendeevoo works on an on-demand basis, with singles ordering a date for that night, just like requesting an Uber.
Built into this model is an innovative monetisation strategy that doesn’t rely on advertising, subscriptions or in-app payments.
In the interview, filmed at rendeevoo’s London base Rainmaking Loft, Christoforakis talks about his philosophies towards online dating, the current trends around on-demand dating apps, and how startups can help to push positive change in an industry controlled by the big players.
