What is it: GoFrendly is the app for women to meet new friends through secure and safe matching. Made by women for women, the app encourages platonic relationships and lasting companionships.
How it works: Simply log in via Facebook or Google+, after which you can choose your desired area for meetup. You can also enter certain preferences for reasons to hang out together, such as coffee, shopping, spa and pampering, even a ‘doesn’t matter as long you are jolly’ reason exists!
There is also a short and sweet template that you can use to describe yourself in a few sentences, including having indications such as your age, relationship status and whether you have any children.
Best for: Women who have entered a new phase of their lives and seeking for companions!
Value Offering: Ever felt left out because your friends have moved on to a different phase of life without you? We all have different stages in our life where waves of changes might overwhelm us sometimes, and finding relatable peers to tide this through will help make the journey so much more worthwhile.
Hype Level: GoFrendly started firstly with a landing page to first test waters if anyone is interested in the social platform. Within a couple of months, they now have enough members to fill up a midsize Swedish town! Just last week, they have also secured another whopping $3 million funding for their users, the oldest being 82 years old! Today, the free app has also expanded to Oslo and will be offering a more comprehensive solution both digitally and physically soon!
