  8. 8. Press & Testimonials “LikeBright [is] achieving the impossible: an even balance between men and women users.” “No one has figured out how to mimic offline behavior and make online dating feel normal, got hooked up through friends. The market of people who don't date online is a pretty big one. LikeBright has the chance to change the perception and be a true consumer brand.” – Shane Mac, Director of Product at Zaarly “As a woman who met my husband through friends, I can't say enough about LikeBright's underlying philosophy and approach to dating. And as a woman with lots of single male friends, I can attest that there's no better wingman than a wingwoman. LikeBright is leveling the playing field in [dating].” –RebeccaLovell,ChiefBusinessOfficeratGeekWire “LikeBright has the best method for introducing couples for romantic relationships. Period." – Dr. Galen Buckwalter, LikeBright investor & Former Chief Scientist at eHarmony
  9. 9. “Large addressable market ripe for startups with the right mix of vision, management, nimbleness and marketing dollars. Current crop of old-growth competition [unable] to innovate into the social dating space where identity, authenticity and robust matching and deep profiles intersect. That’s LikeBright and that’s why I'm advising them.” – David Evans, Online Dating Insider “LikeBright's approach to dating is comfortable for women, something that its competitors sadly lack. And it takes advantage of a natural human impulse: the desire to set up your single friends. Combine that with the fact that there's currently no dominant dating platform on Facebook and you've got a winner on your hands.” – Kim Rachmeler, LikeBright investor & former VP of Community at Amazon.com Online Dating Insider Microsoft Ventures “At the end of day, technology is about helping enrich people’s lives. Using social signals we generate online, LikeBright lets your network have a say in who your potential matches could be. Because who better to vouch for you and a match than your friends and family? We’re excited at the opportunity to help LikeBright further this vision.” – Rahul Sood, General Manager of Microsoft Ventures
