Today, I’m thrilled to announce that The League has raised $2.1M from an incredible mix of angel investors and venture capital firms that believe The League can finally make online dating ‘work’ for our generation. This money has been raised so we can give you, our users, exactly what you’ve been asking for: more features, more events, more singles and more cities.
Just two months ago we launched The League in private beta to just 1,000 Bay Area singles who were frustrated with the current dating channels out there and eager to help us build something better. Watching The League grow into a dynamic, close-knit community that now has thousands of ambitious, driven singles that are actually meeting up in person (gasp!) has been exciting, rewarding…and pretty freaking cool. Since November we’ve made more than 20,000 matches and have 19 ‘confirmed’ relationships!
None of this would have been possible without you, our early users! I want to thank you so much for taking the extra time out of your day to give us feedback, report bugs, and refer your friends to get onboard this wild beta ride. Keep the feedback coming – we have a lot of work ahead but the fun is just beginning!
