TECH ROUND - Mar 9 - After setting up a profile and filters, Cheekd will send users' notifications when a potential is nearby. And because Cheekd uses Bluetooth, it doesn't require an Internet connection. Users will get a notification if someone who meets their criteria is within 30 feet of them.
Q: How did you come up with the idea for the company?
A: In 2008, I was out to dinner with a colleague. He'd spotted an attractive woman and scribbled, "Want to have dinner?" on the back of his business card and slipped it to her as we were leaving the restaurant. He left with a date. I left with an idea. I launched Cheekd - a deck of ice-breaking dating cards with a unique code that lead the recipient to the privacy protected online dating profile. We've since pivoted Cheekd into a hyper-speed app that gives singles the ability to never miss a real-life potential "love connection."
Q: What can we hope to see from Cheekd in the future?
A: My plan is to expand and create a spin off tp allow users to have a more organic, yet virtual way, of making connections for anything from business, networking, fitness, friendship or hobbies.
