(St. Louis, MO, July 18, 2022) – Today, Approach Dating announced a partnership with City Foundry. City Foundry will now be listed as a meeting location within the Approach app, giving singles the option to connect at any of its many vendors and bringing new customers to the food hall.
Approach Dating helps singles to find their person, in person by eliminating all of the wasted time that online daters previously had to spend on their devices. With Approach, singles view a radar of other users in their vicinity and can send “nudges” with a proposal to connect safely, in-person at an Approach Partner Business. Approach has a variety of Partner Businesses throughout the city, including bars, restaurants, ice cream shops, and even a yoga studio! We are thrilled to be able to offer our users several more meetup options with this new partnership with City Foundry.
A recent Approach user described the app as, “A good opportunity to casually meet like-minded singles around St Louis.” Dating shouldn’t be stressful, and it definitely shouldn’t be the 10-hour per week investment that the average single user reports. Stop dating on your phone and start making meaningful connections!
The partnership with City Foundry comes amid the company achieving several key milestones. Approach was selected as one of 1,000+ applicants into Newchip’s global accelerator program, graduated from the ITEN Investor Readiness Program in April, and is nearing 2,000 user downloads.
Approach now has over 60 Partner Businesses throughout St. Louis, which offers users an abundance of options for connecting in person. Users can also take advantage of the specials that Approach Partner Businesses offer, making dating more affordable.
Approach Inc. was founded in St. Louis in 2020 to bridge the gap between online dating and meeting in person. Approach empowers users to forge real human connection and embrace individual preferences by connecting people in real-time in safe, low-pressure environments because we believe that you can only find your person if you’re in person. We invest in the local economy by partnering with businesses to feature their establishments within the app as meetup sites and by facilitating singles events at their businesses.
