You like what you see? You want to get on board? You think we can do great things together? It is hard not to engage these conversations, though they certainly can be distracting.
At DatePerfect, we are proud of what we have built, tickled by the amazing response, and flattered by offers of investment and partnership. So far, we have remained a scrappy lean-startup, self funded, and laser focused. We’ve only been beholden to bringing value to online daters, serving the dating industry as a whole, keeping our overhead as low as possible, and driving steadily toward profitability. This is truly a luxury many young companies do not get to enjoy. Now that we have achieved commercial launch, the time for true growth has come.
We are an experienced team and have structured the company in a manner to accommodate future partnerships. A Delaware C Corp, based in San Francisco, with United States and EU awarded IP, we have managed to keep our CAP tables clean. With no outstanding convertible debt and low technical debt, our house is in order. Our rock-solid backend, innovative and stable front end, and ingenious algorithms all utilize open-source elements to minimize the impact of expansion and scale. In a highly niched industry that often forces providers into vertical silos, we’ve managed to stay “horizontal” on two levels: 1) Delivering an elegant UI/UX for consumers trying to make sense of the noise, and 2) Providing and API for developers and analysts seeking a faster path to underlying data that drives their business.
While this is an opportunity for some pretty good jokes about remaining ‘Horizontal in the Dating Space’, we will save that for another time. If the above gets you truly excited, your organization is expert in the dating industry, and you have a strong pitch for why we are better together than apart, then perhaps we should talk.
