Hinge is where relationships start. We’ll help you meet someone the old-fashioned way: through your friends. Hinge cuts the clutter, the creeps and the games. So you can stop swiping strangers, and find something real. By introducing trust and transparency through social, Hinge is shaking up the dating landscape and has attracted over $20M in funding from investors such as Shasta Ventures, FoundersFund, Lowercase Capital, Social+ Capital, Great Oaks and Red Swan. Launched in DC in 2013, Hinge is now located in NYC’s Flatiron district.
