Our Founders, Elisse and Melanie, recently sat down with Spaceship to talk about all things Ziinkle, disrupting online dating, being women in business, and the challenges of capital raising as a female founder.
This award celebrates creative and innovative design in the traditional or digital visual representation of ideas and messages. Consideration given to clarity of communication and the matching information style to audience.
The impressive capital raise announcement follows Ziinkle’s acceptance into the world-renowned Newchip Accelerator Program, where the tech startup was chosen out of over 1,000 applicants. “We are excited for Ziinkle and believe they will be well positioned to take advantage of a global ecosystem” said Armando Vera Carvajal, Vice President of products at Newchip.
Beyond Impossible sit with some incredible hard working figures in the Australian sphere, who achieved the impossible by means of hard work, dedication and relentless action. In this episode Joseph sits with the founders of Australian dating app, Ziinkle, Elisse and Melanie.
When Sydneysider Melanie became single after a long-term relationship, she did what many others do when they’re looking for love: she downloaded a dating app. After swiping and feeling like she was a “digital commodity”, her friend Elisse offered to be her ultimate wingwoman to help her meet people in bars, the old-fashioned way.
Melanie and Elisse reason with me about the problem that dating apps created and the solution that is being solved by Ziinkle. Ziinkle brings connection, communication and authenticity back into the dating game with the ability to find other singles out and about.
As of today, Ziinkle is now available for singles all across Australia, solving the issue of dead-end digital profiles one meaningful connection at a time. Think less mindless swiping and more going on dates and meeting other single people.
The client for IAA Big Idea 2022 is the dating app Ziinkle and this year’s challenge is to create an innovative, high-impact campaign to help grow awareness and drive downloads of the Ziinkle app among single Australians.
Ziinkle believes the best connections are made in real life, spotting someone across the room and getting that ‘instant vibe’, which is why they want to help more people match and meet when they’re out and about.
We know that you’re over the swiping games and endless chat that goes nowhere. So, we’re helping you see where other singles are out and about socially to get yourself in the right place, at the right time.
In this article we discuss why we have chosen to Equity Crowdfund and the unconscious discrimination female founders still face when it comes to capital raising, despite female-led startups returning an average 78 cents in revenue, while male-led startups return 31 cents.
