High Concept Statement
Tinder but with activities
Tired of contemplating first dates, or a fun night out with some friends? Match with people who already determined an activity of interest and meet them while doing something you like.
Explore activities near you with someone who gets the thrill of it!
People are using both dating and meeting apps in order to meet people who share similar interests and ideas. Apps like Tinder, MeetMeOutside or KinectUs offer the opportunity to meet people based on location or interest; however, our app is for real time and upcoming events that are actually happening locally rather than hypothetical interests. All which are activities that could be done individually or with others.
Forget about just matching with someone who you think looks good, how about matching with someone who shares the same interest? DTM (DownToMeet) is not another dating app, its a connecting app.
Swipe for an activity that has a set time and a place, and match with someone who is down to be just as curious as you.
The app will be free to download. The basic services are free but users can subscribe to a premium account for a monthly fee which can include more personalized content and further swipes. Other revenue streams include a reservation fee taken from merchants when consumers reserve and pay for their activities through our app and, similar to Google, merchants/companies will have the opportunity to pay for advertisement space and higher placements on match listings or recommendations. The app also promotes local businesses and community interaction.
