VERDICT.CO.UK - June 30 - Thursday, the dating app backed by Monzo founder Tom Blomfield, has just topped up its coffers with a £2.5M round. "He is going to be a fairly key stakeholder with us," says Matt McNeill Love, co-founder and COO at Thursday, tells Verdict. McNeill Love is unwilling to reveal what Thursday's valuation is following the dating app's latest cash injection. "I'm afraid our chairman's advisors wouldn't be too happy with us saying," McNeill Love protests. "But I can give you a steer: it's over £10M by quite a bit." Thursday's latest funding was backed by Ascension Ventures, Jägermeister's venture arm Best Nights VC, Connect Ventures, TypeForm and FIIT. The Thursday dating app is only available on Thursdays. Users can only search for, match and chat with would-be paramours for 24 hours on the fourth day of the week. Then the magic disappears at the stroke of midnight, with no chats or matches to be saved. The founders believe this encourages serious singles to set up dates directly and cut through plenty of time-wasting waffle.
