Company Summary

In the Asian Century, the pivotal players in this new global configuration of East and West are sophisticated, well-educated, bicultural individuals whom are transpacific in nature. Privy has created a curated network experience that answers the questions: who’s in town?, where to go? and what to do? on a mobilized "social dashboard". We also provide premium subscription services that include eharmony-style matchmaking and “black card” discounts.
