We are thrilled to announce the final dating speaker at the GDI Amsterdam Conference is the co-founder & CEO of one of the world’s fastest-growing dating apps, Paktor.

Paktor is one of the leading apps in the Southeast Asia market, with over 7m users creating 15m matches a month and the company expecting the app to double its userbase by the end of 2016.

The dating sensation has also raised over $12.3m to expand in a region that many see as a key market for the future of online dating, and young CEO Joseph Phua has expertly led the app’s growth in a complex market.
