Matchmecupid wishes to address issues of today’s youth. The primary ones being, will I actually find love online? Do I really need someone’s help? I need to spend some time with the other person. Also, having spent a lot of time online, there is an inherent need to look beyond one’s social network, ie, beyond their friends and their friends’ friends.
Founded by three friends, Mandeep Kaur, professional marketer, Ritesh Choudhary, Software Engineer, Shalaka, Consultant, Matchmecupid focuses on a specific demographic to connect individuals. The individuals they connect are unmarried, 25 plus aged, possess at least one degree, and have should have incomes above a benchmark (for girls it should be above 5 lakhs and for guys, above 8 lakhs per annum).
