Startup Roundup – 17th May

GDI is constantly on the lookout for new players, disruptive business models, and innovative technologies in the online dating market.

This Startup Roundup is presented in partnership with The Social Discovery Group, who are currently eager to connect with startups in the social discovery and online dating space.

Duolicious – Online dating, but based and true love-pilled: With over 50,000 users, this dating app uses personality tests, communities, and a unique matching algorithim to connect compatible singles. The platform has been received with controversy online, being dubbed the “femcel dating app”.

TinDog – For dog owners: This social dating app looks to connect dog owners, offering users the ability to filter by distance, interests and other categories. This ultimately helps users to find dogs in their area and see information about their owners.

Zoukru – Connecting Black people all over the world: This platform serves black people and people of other ethnicities who love black love and are interested in meeting other singles. Beyond its matchmaking services, it also looks to provide coaching and styling services.

In Case You Missed It! Here’s last week’s Startup Roundup:

fluddr – Date deeper. Love stronger: Launching later this year, fluddr aims to understand each user’s six dimensions of intimacy: emotional, intellectual, social, physical, bedroom, and spiritual. It’s already partnered with identity verification platform CLEAR to provide a safer dating experience.

ABYOW – Ex to next: This dating app adopts an ‘anti-swiping’ model by aiming to get two singles in a conversation with one another in less than 30 seconds.

Singles on Socials DC – For DC’s most eligible singles: This small network organises happy hour mixers for singles in Washington DC, with over 700 followers on Instagram currently.
