Dua.com, a popular dating app among Albanian-speaking communities, has acquired Spotted.de, a German dating platform.
Dua.com works by reconnecting Albanians wherever they are living, helping to create connections among a “globally fragmented community”, explains Startupticker. Their app has been downloaded over 1.4 million times, becoming the fastest-growing matchmaking app in Albanian-speaking countries.
To expand, the company acquired Spotted.de, a social dating app popular in French and German speaking countries. Spotted.de provides a hyperlocal service, helping users find other people they’ve crossed paths with.
“DUA addresses a fundamental but yet unmet need for many globally dispersed communities. These international Migrant Communities are fragmented and disconnected. Our mission is to reconnect them, wherever they are. From anywhere to everywhere, respectively, from hyper-local (Spotted) to super global (dua.com)”, explains Valon Asani, CEO of dua.com.
“We are very happy to join forces with the competent team of dua AG and Valon to take the app to the next level and bring even more people together, in perfect keeping with the Spotted philosophy of ‘share the love’”, said Nik Myftari, Founder of Spotted.de.
