I am hopeful knowing that the founder of the app found incredible love on his own site.
We, at e Harmony, are committed to helping black men and women find love that lasts, we are confident in our ability to do so.
“Black male daters typically had to send 10 times the number of messages as their white counterparts to receive one response and black women were fetishized for their looks and flooded with inappropriate comments.”By combining their love of technology, serious smarts (the trio boasts degrees from Dartmouth, Harvard, and the University of Virginia) and a desire to fix the problem of dating bias, Bae was launched at Howard University in April 2014.
The three friends only had a 0 marketing budget but possessed plenty of faith that they’d found the answer to the specific dating woes that affected black millennial daters and those looking to meet them.
The e Harmony membership pool is a racially, ethnically, and religiously diverse group of quality individuals.
No matter what type of person you are looking for, be it a black single in New York or a black single in Chicago, chances are you will find that type of person on e Harmony.
Whether you feel confident in the art of seduction or if you just need to pull up your flirting skills, Quick is the right choice! Forget about old-fashioned dating sites with all those send-and-wait messages.
After explosive growth and praise from Techstars and Facebook’s prestigious Fb Start Accelerator Program, as well as plenty of media profiles, Bae was officially acqui-hired by if(we) last month.“After watching Brian and Justin’s success positioning Bae and growing its audience, it was clear to me they could make an even larger impact working with us at if(we) leveraging our scale and resources,” says Louis Willacy, head of M&A at if(we).
“It’s rare that you find a team that fits so well with your immediate needs, so the stars were truly aligned here.”Brian and Justin moved from their New York City headquarters to San Francisco to lead marketing and growth across if(we)’s entire portfolio, which includes Tagged, Hi5, Fandom, and new social streaming site We Chill.
Cofounded in 2013 by tech-savvy brothers Brian, 28, and Justin Gerrard, 30 and friend Jordan Kunzika, 22, a first-generation, Angolan-American, Bae grew out of a conversation that came up over a dinner for young entrepreneurs in NYC.
When the topic turned to online dating, the three began to discuss the difficulties that their peers were facing when trying to meet people on Tinder and other apps.“For many of our friends of color, particularly black men and women, the experience on mass-marketing dating apps like Tinder and Match was unfulfilling, and at times degrading,” says Justin Gerrard.
