When I see my friends from Jelly Chicago (a co-working group), we often bounce ridiculous startup ideas off of each other. For some reason, many are centered around online dating. It’s a really fun space to think about because there’s a simple problem with limitless solutions–just look at all of the different dating sites out there. Most of them require your searching through profiles and contacting people (or waiting to be contacted). Others propose matches based on fancy algorithms. MeetMoi is a mobile dating company that uses push technology to help you meet new people, and it’s all based on where you are right now. MeetMoi is located in New York, NY, but you can use it anywhere (well anywhere that they have a critical mass of users). Basically, all you have to do is fill out a profile and get out of the house. MeetMoi will find people with similar interests and push messages to your phone when you’re near each other. You can initiate a chat and decide to meet immediately, another time or not at all. It’s a little creepy, but people said that about online dating not so long ago.
MeetMoi’s home page claims that 29,491 people joined their network this week and 71,148 people are meeting on MeetMoi today. It’s a free app download, so the hard part is really just getting enough people to be ok with location based mobile dating so that the network effect comes into play. Here’s an illustrated view of How It Works. The business is all based on MeetMoi’s “premium membership,” which “allows you to see who has been looking at your profile” and gives you “access to more advanced search and filtering options.” Those sound like the kinds of things that traditional dating sites offer. If I was in charge, I’d build in premium functionality that tells you where to go to meet the right people–keep the focus on being location based. If you’d like to work in the mobile dating space, then go take a look at MeetMoi’s Careers page. They have a few positions posted including:
The CEO Coordinator position is definitely the best fit for a new grad. It’s probably a bit administrative, but it’ll get you deep into the business and give you a platform to move into a different function.
