TECH CRUNCH - Apr 13 - UK startup Rendeevoo cuts to the chase by cutting out the chat element. Users browse profiles and when they like someone they can place "an order" by selecting when and where they want the date to take place, and then pay for it. They are paying for one cocktail at one of the East London bars that Rendeevoo has partnered with. Both parties have to confirm before the transactions are processed. Users can cancel the date up to 30 minutes before without being penalized. The app soft launched in April 2014 and raised ~$150K over the past 10 months, with ~$50K pulled in from crowdfunding via Seedrs.
