SF BUSINESS TIMES - Oct 23 - Dawoon Kang trusts her dating app so much that her last two long-term relationships were people she met on her own site. Kang is co-founder and co-CEO of Coffee Meets Bagel, a San Francisco-based dating site company she started with her sisters Arum Kang and Soo Kang in 2012. The app has recently celebrated 50M match milestone, and saw 166% revenue growth between 2016 and 2018. To help build on the company's momentum, Coffee Meets Bagel this year hired a CFO, who is an alumni of Zynga and OpenTable; a CTO, who was formerly of Hearsay Systems; and a vice president of analytics who spent time at Lyft and Facebook. One of the app's most valued subscription features is an analytics report on users' matches. The report allows them to see their potential dates' response rates, match rates and tendency to start a conversation. They also let users know if a match has read their message and whether there might be a connection before choosing to start a conversation. Coffee Meets Bagel ditches the traditional swiping model.
