Story of Funded Dating Startup
18 points by tafrmc 15 days ago | hide | past | favorite | 1 comment
After we raised our seed round from a billionaire investor, my cofounder quit. He said that starting a company was too hard for him and that he didn't believe in my idea. As weird as it may be, he said too much was at stake now and he couldn't cope with it. It sucks being left on your own but here I am fighting as usual, hoping to find someone amazing. I want to see if anyone is interested in replacing him and joining me on an adventure to change the dating space for good.

I've had these problems for years and I will never give up. Covid-19 made people lonely and I must help them. I just have to solve these problems and I owe it to my generation. If I don't do it, someone else will.

In a post Covid-19 era, social networks will be different and we will go back to basics. And in the same way you can now push a button and call you friend, you'll soon be able to take a selfie and go meet someone similar to you for the first time.

I know this is going to be a long search because finding a great person is hard, but I think that everything happens for a reason. And Hacker News is a great place to start, so here I am sharing an opportunity with you.
