Happn & Bristlr/M14 Speaking At GDI Amsterdam Conference


GDI is proud to announce that our May dating conference will feature talks from Happn & Bristlr/M14.

The director of trends at mobile dating giant Happn, Marie Cosnard, will be speaking at the conference in Amsterdam, along with the CEO & founder of revolutionary white label app platform M14, John Kershaw.

Since Happn’s launch in 2014, Cosnard has been instrumental in Happn’s exemplary growth over the past few years, handling the French startup’s PR, communications, marketing & trends.

Kershaw is the founder of Bristlr, a dating site for beard lovers that was one of 2015’s surprise niche hits, seeing worldwide growth after being featured on The Washington Post, BBC, Newsweek and The Telegraph.

Following the success of Bristlr, Kershaw and his team tailored the platform the app was created on, building one of the dating industry’s most exciting new ventures – M14.

M14 is a fully customisable white label dating platform for apps – providing clients with the full technology and base to build a secure, scalable, pre-populated & feature rich mobile dating product.

These fantastic speakers join the CEO of worldwide dating leader Zoosk, Kelly Steckelberg, and the co-founder & CEO of exclusive European dating brand The Inner Circle, David Vermeulen, who are both giving talks at the May event.

We will continue to release the full lineup of speakers this week, as well as a few more surprises, so keep an eye out for more announcements in the coming days.
