Exclusive Dating App The League Launches in New York, Only 2,500 Singles Can Use It
The highly exclusive dating app called “The League” was released in San Francisco back in January. Those who are fortunate enough to be allowed to use it, will be happy to know that it is now available on New York. But once again, not everyone can use it, or download it.
The League was founded by Stanford graduate Amanda Bradford, who managed to raise $2.1 million from different Silicon Valley investors for this unique take on dating.
Think of The League as Tinder, but only selective people are allowed to be on it. The app accommodates accounts of the most interesting people from both New York and San Francisco.
There is some sort of a hidden algorithm in place that invites such people to use the app primarily based on their LinkedIn résumés and friend networks.
Ambition is the main trait The League looks for in its user, Bradford says. Since the app came out, there are 100,000 people on the waitlist, and around 16,000 of them are NY residents. Hence, The League’s arrival in New York City.
Most of these people are from advertising or finance sectors. Which is understandable as they are some of the most busiest professionals, and don’t really have time to go out and find love.
Bradford claims that the app’s growth rate is 50% month over month, and 70% of messages are answered on The League.
For now, there are only 2,500 New Yorkers who are allowed to use the app.
