Founder, and author of The African Bachelor blog, Kwadjo Panyin has teamed up with two US-based bachelors to launch a new dating site dedicated to Africans living abroad and in select African countries.
“Like most entrepreneurs, I developed the idea to start a dating website and app to solve my own conundrum of finding compatible single women to date in the United States.” Kwadjo said
Joining hands with fellow bachelors Kwame Fosu, an Engineer in Silicon Valley- California and Isaac Osei, an Electrical and Computer Engineer in Nashville -Tennessee to develop the site and app was a pushover. Kwadjo’s fellow bachelors were in the same situation of not finding a pool of compatible professional single African women to meet and date abroad.
“Finding an African woman who meets your needs on the mainstream dating site,” Kwame Fosu said, “is equivalent to finding a needle in a haystack.”
To increase their dating pool of compatible African singles living abroad, the three bachelors joined forces and Afringle was born.
Afringle will expose Africans living abroad to a larger pool of eligible singles and also help them find good dating matches.
On the business model front, Afringle is using the tried and true model most mainstream online dating sites use which is, charging a moderate fee for subscriptions. Afringle however brings on board a little twist.
According to the main website developer, Isaac Osei, Afringle will be perfectly suited for the African professional who also wishes to maintain a level of anonymity.
The app enables Users to have a robust dating site with a compatibility chemistry algorithm which seeks to make matching easier. Users will also have the option to hang out in the clique or chat rooms on the app.
The site plans to add a verification process to ensure only serious minded single African professionals or individuals can join.
