OPW INTERVIEW - Apr 3 - I met Karinna several years ago in California. She's entirely devoted to the relationships and dating industry and has created an app that help daters keep track of the people they're dating, and their dates, and most importantly to help them make sense of it all. Think of Relationship AI as helping them with their dating decision making and life. I really think this is an essential tool for daters, and highly complementary with the dating industry. Here's my interview with the Karinna, the CEO. [Full disclosure: RAI is a client of Courtland Brooks] - Mark Brooks
Why did you start Relationship AI?
I spent years working as a relationship advisor and the CEO of LOVE TV, where I addressed the challenges facing millennials in dating, wellness, and building relationships. During this time I came to realize that dating has become increasingly complicated. Keeping track of your dating life in today's app-jungle, including real-life encounters, is becoming almost a full-time job.
Daters really need help in managing their dating activity and making the best choices around matches.
Relationship A.I. was born from the accumulation of all my data, research and work in the dating industry over the past 10 years.
What does Relationship AI do?
Relationship A.I. is a personal CRM to increase the ROI on the time spent dating. We are giving daters the ability to track their dating activity and create metrics to improve effectiveness and efficiency while dating. This has positive implications for the dating industry. It’s never been done before.
What is the pricing model?
We run a Freemium model, with paid features and upgrades coming in 2020.
How does it serve the interests of dating app owners?
Relationship A.I. provides a compelling incentive for daters that can reactivate a dating app's dormant database. We keep your brand top of mind with daters who are juggling anything between 2 and 7 apps at a time. Lastly, we add to your bottom line. There's rev share opportunities for dating app partners from our (upcoming) paid upgrades.
How far along is the app development?
We have just launched v1 on IOS. We are developing early traction and partnerships.
What are your plans for 2020?
Complete seed round funding and launch version 2 with out first paid upgrades on IOS and Android. We want to secure strategic partnerships with a few dating industry leaders.
