What We're Building

Tinder is the way everyone is meeting new people. We find out who likes you nearby and connect you with them if you're also interested.

1) Tinder shows you someone nearby it thinks you should know, and lets you anonymously like or pass on them...
2) If someone you like happens to like you back, then Tinder makes an introduction & lets you chat within the app.

Add testimonials, product launches, and photos that highlight your company
