Alumni Launch New Dating App – INSTNT
James Gee and Chris Seddon, who both left the school in 2005, are launching their own business and app early in 2016. The business was created as a side project with James working as an Equity Trader in the City of London and Chris as Head of Marketing at a retail start-up but they both always had entrepreneurial ambitions to start their own business. This is a new and exciting Group Dating app called INSTNT.
The idea of a Group Dating app developed from a belief of spontaneity and strength in numbers. It connects you and your friends with other groups, instantly. The app allows groups to upload ‘real-time’ pictures, swipe and find a match, then message and arrange to meet instantly in a safe and friendly environment. One-on-one dating is proven to be daunting, time consuming and has a low success rate. Unlike other dating apps, INSTNT realises the advantages of a group dynamic, helping to break down the barriers of awkward one-on-one dating, bridging the gap between groups and encouraging new found friendships or relationships.
INSTNT plans to provide a functionality for restaurants and bars to promote their services to app users within their searchable area. Venues will be able to acquire a top listing on the app by paying a premium rate, thus reaching out to thousands of app users in a specific city and encouraging groups to visit their locations by using discounts and offers.
James and Chris, Co-Founders of INSTNT: “In a growing culture of impatience more and more of us are heading online for the convenience factor, but online dating rarely lives up to expectation. INSTNT was born after observing the many flaws in one-on-one dating and the negative preconceptions that come with it, including endless swiping, unimaginative messaging and not to mention awkward first dates. As a result, we have developed an app that is essentially a hybrid of Snapchat and Tinder, cutting out the pressure of one-on-one dating and providing a platform for relaxed dating scenarios amongst friends. INSTNT promotes spontaneity and strength in numbers, it multiplies your chances of having fun, and brings the excitement back to dating.”
It works on a simple four step process: take a group selfie, select the distance you’re willing to travel, swipe through other groups, match and meet instantly. Together in an Instnt.
The app is available for download at the Apple Store so check it out. They also have fun and active social media accounts.
