Online “Large addressable market ripe for startups with the right mix of vision,Dating management, nimbleness and marketing dollars. Current crop of old-growthInsider 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 Im advising them.” – David Evans, Online Dating Insider “LikeBrights 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 theres currently no dominant dating platform on Facebook and youve got a winner on your hands.” – Kim Rachmeler, LikeBright investor & former VP of Community at Amazon.com “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 Bing Fund
