OPW INTERVIEW - Last week, the fitness dating app FITFCK announced an investment at $3M valuation from OnlyFans founder, Timothy Stokely. We have reached out to Jamie to learn more about his app and the investment.
What made you start FITFCK?
FITFCK was created when my girlfriend broke up with me just weeks before my first bodybuilding show due to my excessive training commitments and lifestyle. So you could say that the motivation comes from the fact that the founder is an actual case study of the problem we are looking to solve!
How is FITFCK better than other dating apps?
FITFCK offers a niche for gym lovers to connect through their common love for fitness, which they would not be able to do on mass market dating apps. We are also focused on building a multi level consumer brand, not just a dating app.
How did you meet the Founder of OnlyFans?
Through an Instagram DM!
What will you do with the money to grow FitFck?
We will be using the money to build our audience and complete our app build which is releasing in November.
How does the OnlyFans founder view the investment, FitFck and the dating space in general?
Here is his quote: !I am delighted to have had the opportunity to invest in FITFCK" says Timothy Stokely. "Having known Jamie for over 3 years now, his vision, drive and determination coupled with the brand concept is something that I fully believe in and I am looking forward to seeing it realise its global potential as a multi level consumer brand."
How are you planning on building your audience? i.e. influencers?
Social media marketing across a number of platforms, including influencers.
