The League recently debuted in Cleveland and now sponsors activities in which singles can connect with others.
A handpicked group of 500 Cleveland-area singles, chosen from a waiting list of more than 3,000 people, were able to have full access to the dating app at The League’s Opening Day event.
The attendees were also able to receive their matches selected by The League’s algorithm.
The League’s CEO and founder Amanda Bradford had the idea of the app during her second year of an MBA program at Stanford University in 2014.
Bradford realised she was not interested in men who “didn’t share my same drive to achieve, level of intellect, or desire to be in a relationship where our careers and social lives were of equal importance,” she wrote in an LinkedIn essay.
She added: “I wanted to build a community where smart, outspoken, high-achieving women are celebrated and encouraged to progress in their career full-time. I wanted to never EVER hear a woman be worried that her educational achievements or career ambition would be a turn-off.”
The League currently has more than one million people on its waiting list in 30 different cities, and debuted in six new cities (including Cleveland) on Tuesday.
The League app is free to download on iOS and Google Play. Users can download for free and then upgrade to paid memberships to allow new features.
Memberships can range from $59 for one month, to $250 for one year.
