In the final talk of the day, if(we) founder & CEO and former Badoo exec Dash Gopinath said he believed the world of online dating and social was increasingly colliding together, and in the future we would see a merging of the two.
The Silicon Valley founder said we are already seeing this in Asia with massively popular apps like We Chat, where dating and social all form part of the same platform.
About Us:• We created a super-fast gay dating and social networking platform that changes the dating game.• Dating for gay men has never been sexier, faster, safer and easier!
The network/app operates in a similar way to many dating sites: there are "like" functions, photo browsing, profile building, and ways to interact and chat.
The app focusses on accountability to encourage respect and uses social network analysis for making connections.
This is the second big dating acquisition by the tech firm in the past six months, after buying white label leader Dating Factory last year.
Announced by CMO Sam Van Campenhout, the Agile Wings exec then handed over to new Love Systems CEO Derek Cajun, who spoke about whether date coaching and lifestyle products can work together with online dating services.
One top tip was the importance of looking at user density in key cities and markets when looking at expansion options.
