20th October 2021, London: CEO of ‘the dating app for busy professionals’, The Intro.com, becomes Advisor to Venntro Media Group following the leading social discovery and online dating business acquiring the app earlier this year.
The Intro, which was backed by the VC fund Global Founders Capital, was acquired by leading social discovery and online dating business Venntro Media Group (the company behind White Label Dating) earlier this year.
As part of the acquisition, The Intro's Co-founder and CEO George Burgess has now become an Advisor to Venntro to support their growth into niche dating, social discovery and live streaming apps - alongside growing his new venture Basubu.com.
The Intro focuses on giving users dates, not swipes. When users match with someone on The Intro, they can be on a video date within hours or days - unlike other dating apps which often focus on swipes, messages and ghosting.
"We were really impressed by what George and the team had achieved with The Intro and we're excited to integrate it with our business with the support of George who has joined us as an Advisor." says Ross Williams, CEO of Venntro Media Group.
"The high quality mobile experience offered by The Intro is exactly the kind of polished product we will be offering our partners. This acquisition is our first step to enable slick, high quality mobile dating and social discovery apps across WhiteLabelDating.com to support our vision to enable our customers to connect, engage and share within tolerant, inclusive niche communities and live their happily ever now."
