There is always a space for a new unique app, which surpasses the previous ones with its usefulness and ergonomics. An ambitious team from Denmark aspires to prove this point by challenging the market of dating services. Teazr has invented a new social discovery app, where people meet using their selfies. Recently Teazr has closed an investment round of 1,6 million DKK (214 000 EUR) from the largest venture fund SEED capital and three private investors, reported in TrendsOnline.
The app was launched in Denmark first, then in Sweden and Norway, and within weeks it will appear in the United States. Just 7 weeks after the launch the app had 10,000 users. And within six month since the launch it has 15,000 users in Denmark. With such a start the hope is that Teazr will become a number one app for users all around the world.
“We would like to create a product that millions want to use … we launched the app in Denmark to test it out, and as we are nearing our goal, we can finally go to the States. We will start in Los Angeles and then go to San Francisco,” says co- founder and CEO, Daniel Delouya.
The app meets the need for security and transparency in virtual communication and aims to change user experience. A new groundbreaking feature of the app is that the text on the selfies are directly transferred to the chat.
“People communicate through images instead of texting. This makes it easier for people to start a conversation with each other. You can’t select an image from your camera roll, instead you only capture the image directly through the app. In this way, we have made a seven-second snap picture for the sake of security. If you take a screenshot, you will be banned for 24 hours. If you do it again, you will be banned for 30 days. It’s one of the ways to make sure that people feel secure,” explains Daniel Delouya.
Daniel Delouya, Umar Akram, and Simon Degn are the team behind Teazr. They met in November last year and started an exciting journey to embody the idea they were burning for. Their work manifests the harmonious combination of proficiency, energy and creativity driven by enormous inspiration. Recently the first employee has joined the team, and currently they are looking for talented iOS developers, who could contribute to the development of the app on the US market.
Even though the team works nearly 24/7, they are convinced that it will be worth the effort, when people use and like the product they have created.
“It gives a taste when you can see that people are using our product – something you have spent so many hours of the night for and fought so hard. When people then actually use it and praise it it’s worth it. It sounds like a cliche, but you know, it’s not in vain, and it’s not just some hobby,” Simon Degn.
