Project Description

humhum: Authentic connection, romantic possibility.
 
humhum is bridging the gap between mental wellness and dating—taking holistic approach that focuses on the journey over the outcome, authentic connection, and skill-building so that time spent dating is inherently rewarding. 
Studies show that people using dating apps are more likely to be distressed, anxious, or depressed.

78% of people experience emotional fatigue or burnout from dating, but people continue to repeat the behavior that harms them.

humhum is a subscription app that fosters healthier dating experiences through guided blind dates, group dates and coaching.

 

Our experience pilot was built with no code, to gauge the desirability of 3 core offerings.

 

Based on the traction from our pilot, we've been building and are soon launching an end-to-end, subscription-baed webapp where members can seamlessly book and experience virtual guided dates and receive coaching. We're launching in January 2023.
We're building a webapp based on pilot traction

 

Our team is built for this

 

We're raising $45K to pay our team and finish our product.
