Chew the Fat is a monthly series of conversations with high profile entrepreneurs, founders, VC’s and generally epic people, designed to stimulate, motivate and inspire! Tickets are pricey but the speakers are immense and there is complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks for the night.
This month’s event considers online love and the rise of the online dating industry. Dating applications seem to be as ubiquitous as email in the modern day startup economy. Barely a tube journey goes by without an advert for yet another niche, sub vertical startup appearing. Even a night on the sofa isn’t replete without a real-life user proudly advertising their continued but as yet unsuccessful hunt, or better a year an actual couple who found love through the pixel and wires of online dating.
Chew The Fat is here to ask:
