Concept Name

Couple Spaces

 

High Concept Statement

Couple spaces is akin to Bumble BFF for couples.

 

Status Quo

Relationships are hard. It’s difficult to strike the balance between raising a family, navigating a career, and socializing. Additionally, some couples feel as though they can no longer fully relate to their single friends. Couple Spaces offers a place for couples to meet like minded couples to spur lasting platonic relationship.

 

Competition

The most common way for people to try to fill this gap is to jump into activities together. They can find groups via sites like Meetup, volunteer, attend local events, invite the neighbors over, or plan adult only vacations. While all of these options have the benefit of allowing the couple to be social, none of them facilitate pairing both partners with others that they would like to engage with.

 

Solution

Couple Spaces offers intuitive and familiar navigation with multiple points of customization to allow the app’s algorithm to recommend couples that genuinely complement the personalities and lifestyles of each pair. The app also facilitates meetings in real life by suggesting group activities that fall in line with previously stated interests.

 

Revenue Model

Couple spaces is a free application that has in app purchases for additional features. Users can sign up for monthly, semiannual, or annual subscription to view couples who have already expressed interest in meeting them. Couple spaces also charges venues and groups to advertise/feature their events within our events section.
