George Rawlings wanted a girlfriend and a business. The best way to do both? Start a dating app. The idea began in the back of a car. Rawlings recently broke up with his girlfriend and had to take childhood friend Matt McNeill Love on his pre-booked romantic ski vacation.
As a freshly single they talked about the world of dating apps and came to the conclusion that the current landscape was “irritating and not very exciting”.
After meeting at school, they remained close friends; McNeill Love spent seven years in the army while Rawlings dropped out and tried his hand at entrepreneurship with Agent VOX, the video email platform.
