Mumbai – happn, the French meet-up app, has just announced its partnership with Superstar Hrithik Roshan.
happn created the very first 100% mobile meet-up experience to offer a facilitator and help its users to interact with those that already share a part of their world. happn has revolutionized the industry by bringing back real-life in the user experience thanks to the unique combination of hyper-geolocation in real-time.
On the street, at work, at a party… it could be anywhere. happn puts real life experiences first and favors everyday coincidences. happn simply provides the answer to a universal desire: how can we find that handsome stranger again, the one we didn’t dare approach? Because it seemed inappropriate, impolite or wasn’t the right time.
The app gives users a second chance, the chance to discover, to find a person that caught their eyes. happn’s concept is very straightforward yet universal: in big cities, you cross paths with so many people everyday, with whom you already share the same environment and potentially many other things by living or going out in the same areas. Why not actually meeting and getting to know them? Great people are around you. In showing you who’s been in the same place at the same time as you, happn acts as a tool to provide people with second chances at missed connections.
happn was co-founded by Didier Rappaport, also Chief Executive Officer of the company, and Antony Cohen.The app first launched in February 2014 in Paris, followed by London in May 2014 and New York City in September 2014.Today the app operates worldwide mainly across 40 major cities – including London, New York City, Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, Istanbul, Rio de Janeiro, Paris, Madrid, Sydney, Moscow and Mumbai to name a few – and has amassed 28 million users. In 2016, happn has grown at a pace of 2 million new users each month.
