Coffee Meets Bagel Raises $7 Million Series B

How To Get A Second Date

Coffee Meets Bagel has raised around $7 million in series B funding, an SEC filing has revealed.

PitchBook now values the dating service at over $80 million.

The app is focused on the preferences of its female users, who are able to choose who communicates with them.
