Happn Continues Impressive Expansion, Launching In Canada


Happn is continuing its international expansion, as it closes out a very impressive 2015.

The dating app has just launched in Canada, focusing on cities Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa, Québec and Montréal.

Earlier this year, Happn raised $14m in Series B funding in a round led by Idinvest, taking their total funding to $22m.

Speaking about the launch in Canada, its CEO and founder Didier Rappaport said: “Since launching last year, Happn has experienced amazing growth around the world; the enthusiasm and adoption has been phenomenal.

“We are constantly expanding into more cities around the world, following demand in many cases, so we are thrilled to finally be present throughout Canada. We hope that users in Canada will enjoy using Happn to meet those they’ve crossed paths with in their everyday lives.”


The French app reached 8m users in November, and Rappaport recently said it was adding 1.2m users every month.

Its 60-year-old CEO even made the bold claim that Happn will have 30m users by the end of this year, and just as many as Tinder in 2017.

The product is now live in 25 cities in Europe, South America and the US, and the company has plans to launch the hyperlocal dating app in Asia.
