Company Summary

The co-founders' recently single parents were having trouble meeting quality people. Because when you’re divorced or widowed, the channels to meet like-minded 50+ singles becomes very limited. The boomer audience is very much online, but extremely underserved. And our super connected generation can play reverse matchmaker of sorts—and help get our parents find community and shared interests on and offline.
