In a market as competitive & fast-paced as online dating, it can be difficult for new startups to cut through the noise and rise above the competition to make a mark.
This is something British startup Double has been able to do over the past year, its niche double dating mobile proposition gaining excellent traction, growth and press attention.
Last year, Double’s three founders – Loren Gould, Gary MacDonough and Ben Greenock – were accepted onto BBC entrepreneurial show Dragons’ Den to pitch their double dating app, winning £75,000 funding from investor and entrepreneur Nick Jenkins.
The episode aired back in January, and we recently spoke to the young founders about the “gruelling” process, and how the appearance has helped to further push the app’s growth – the mobile platform hitting 25,000 MAUs and seeing an 18% week-on-week growth.
