London-based dating app So Syncd has recently secured $1million in seed funding to grow operations in the United States. The firm, which was founded by sisters, Louella and Jessica Alderson, matches partners with compatible personality types.
The investment round was led by Upscalers investment club and participated by KM Capital and a number of angel investors.
CEO Jessica, an ex-investment banker, said: “We’re delighted to welcome our new investors on our journey of building a better way to date. Technology has come such a long way over the past decade yet dating apps are still based on looks. So Syncd adds the missing piece of the jigsaw puzzle: personality compatibility.”
Yoann Benhacoun of Upscalers said: “I love Jessica and Louella’s enthusiasm and passion for building So Syncd. I’m thrilled to be supporting them on their journey. They know their market well and are determined to deliver the best experience for their users to connect."
So Syncd was founded in 2021 and uses a unique matching algorithm to help people find love. To date, it has helped at least 462 couples fall in love, two of which are already married and many of them are engaged.
Explaining the success of the app, COO Louella said: “We have a perfectly even split of men and women which improves the experience for everyone. We have a highly engaged user base. A match on our app is seven times more likely to result in a conversation compared to the industry average.”
