JAKARTA POST - June 9 - The app is designed with Asian users, especially women, in mind; to optimize processes of IRL meetings. Gather lets users organize on-demand social "Gatherings", be they group gatherings or individual meet-ups. To host a Gathering, women choose one of four social activities: lunch, coffee, drinks or after-hours. They set the Gathering time and location and invite other friends to cohost. Users are able to discover nearby Gatherings, see cohost profiles and apply to stop by. Hosts will then be able to decide the number of guests they want to meet. The app recently formed a strategic partnership with local food and beverage conglomerate Ismaya Group and is currently in the seed round with US$500K investment from Silicon Valley angel investors.
