THIS DAY - Dec 21 - Dare Olatoye, a 39-year-old digital entrepreneur, and his brother, Ayo, has launched a matchmaking app, Trueflutter. Trueflutter seeks to connect Nigerian and African singles looking for a serious relationship. In 2018 when they had a test-run of the app, the feedback was mind-blowing. ~15K users downloaded the app. Unlike most dating apps which offer users only profile pictures, Trueflutter allows users to add a voice note to their profile. It also lets them respond with a voice text. In August 2020, the brothers closed a seed round which was a syndicated investment from three Angel Networks, and used this to finalize the full product which was recently launched.
