app for people of color to meet, chat and date
Bae (Before Anyone Else) is a free social app for people of color to meet, chat and date. African-Americans are 10x less like to receive messages on mass-market dating platforms than other ethnic groups and 82% of non-Black men show bias against Black women. This leaves over 20Mil potential daters under-served in the US alone, and presents a tremendous opportunity. Blacks are projected to have the highest per capita usage of online dating platforms by 2017, over 50% of Blacks are single, they spend 16+ more hours/month on apps, are 39% more likely to make purchases on one, compared to other groups. Bae addresses this need by essentially providing a marketplace for African-Americans, and all people of African descent, to date. We have registered as a top 50 lifestyle app in 5 African countries already! Users are only matched with other users who "like" them to avoid unwanted suitors. We use a backend algorithm to provide potential Bae's for our users.
