HUFFINGTON POST - Apr 24 - Hornet is a free gay app. Here is the interview with Hornet's CEO and co-founder Sean Howell.
Q: What inspired you to create such an app?
A: Aside from my background as an analyst, I am also an activist and really wanted something different than Grindr. We created something that helps people looking for a lot more than just sex, especially with travelers or people who are just moving to a city.
Q: What purposes does Hornet serve other than hooking up, and why?
A: We, the staff at Hornet, are made up of bleeding-heart homos whose backgrounds are VC's technologists and activists. This gives our community a much different feel. People are also using the app for business networking, to get a job, to explore moving, to plan their vacations.
Q: How do you compare with your competition, like Grindr?
A: I didn't know that that was my competition.
