5th October 2021, London: The Intro, the Dating App for Busy Professionals which was backed by the VC fund Global Founders Capital, has been acquired by leading social discovery and online dating business Venntro Media Group.
The Intro focusses 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.
As part of the acquisition, The Intro's co-founder George Burgess will become an Advisor to Venntro Media Group to support their growth into niche dating, social discovery and live streaming apps.
"We were really impressed by what George and the team had achieved with The Intro and we're excited to acquire the app and integrate it with our business" says Ross Williams, CEO of Venntro Media Group.
"The Intro offers users a high quality mobile experience - and this is exactly the kind of polished product we will be offering our partners through WhiteLabelDating.com. It has dozens of 5-star reviews in the app stores and thousands of loyal, high-value single professionals who will become part of our premium niche."
"Our vision is to provide a range of niche dating apps that integrate video profiles, video stories, video calling and live video streaming to enable our customers to connect, engage and share within tolerant, inclusive niche communities and live their happily ever now."
"The acquisition of The Intro is our first step to enable slick, high quality mobile dating and social discovery apps across WhiteLabelDating.com - in time, we will allow partners to deploy niche dating apps of similar quality to Tinder, Bumble and The Intro but focussed on their specific niches."
