They decided that with the skills they possessed between them, they could set up their own online dating service, to fill the niche in the market.They soon put their plan into operation, giving up their lucrative jobs, and launching the Coffee Meets Bagel Company.Earlier this year, Coffee Meets Bagel finally launched an Android version of the app, opening up the service to far more potential users.
The initial business and number of users grew rapidly, and within a year they had developed and produced their own Coffee Meets Bagel App, however, as with all new start-ups cash-flow was a big hurdle to further rapid growth.
Plus, one match ever 24 hours means that attention isn’t divided among multiple matches at once.
The financing will be used to hire more developers and engineers to continue building out the product.
Coffee Meets Bagel is different from most dating apps in that it offers some level of accountability.
Potential matches are scraped from real-life connections on Facebook, which ensures that everyone is on their best behavior.
