Express Interest

Voujo is a dating app that connects people through personality-based feedback provided by other members and a member’s friends.

Voujo is the only dating app that lets you filter potential dates by desirable personality traits. Then, see what a person’s friends say, and other members who have interacted with the person, before deciding whether to chat or meet up. The net effect: you only write part of your own profile. The rest is written by others.

MG cp Summary

Validated User Acquisition

In our space, initial user acquisition is the largest hurdle faced by a startup. Various factors force a startup to engage in a localized, grassroots effort to acquire an initial user base that will allow the app to operate on its own without people running out of matches. Validating an initial user acquisition method is very difficult.

But once it is done, all a startup needs to do is scale it and the company is in serious business. Borrowing from the methods utilized successfully in our space, we have validated just such a method, and it can be scaled in a big way.

 

Profitable

Building the initial mass of users necessarily requires taking a loss initially, but due to our planned lean operation, as well as our unique and multiple revenue streams, we anticipate achieving profitability (a rarity in our industry, which focuses more on users) relatively quickly and, perhaps as important, amassing a large amount of cash on hand that can be used in a variety of ways and will lessen the need to fund-raise as often as most startups, much less dating services.

 

Portability of Technology

Because our key features are specifically planned to not be inherent to a dating service, they will be portable. In other words, they can be used to start other business lines, particularly once we achieve a mass of users and data we can transfer over to a new, related business, thereby avoiding altogether initial customer acquisition.

First Impression Feedback

Once a certain level of interaction has been achieved between two users, each can provide personality-based, anonymous feedback. The available choices are all positive and are the particular personality traits people most want to see in a potential date out of the gate (e.g., smart, funny, nice). This feedback is displayed on a member’s profile in summary form and can be seen by those other members the member chooses to interact with.

 

Friend Feedback

A user can solicit up to 3 friends to provide them a narrative endorsement that is placed on the user’s profile. This feedback is displayed on a member’s profile in summary form & can be seen by those other members the member chooses to interact.

 

Personality Trait Searches

A member can choose as one of his or her search filters the personality traits related to First Impression Feedback. Because of the obviously/intentionally biased nature of Friend Feedback it is not incorporated into the search algorithm.

 

Control of Interaction

No one can see your full profile or message you unless you choose to let them. So if someone likes you, that person cannot do either of those things unless you like the person back or send them a message. You can remove this access at any time
