Shivam, Ankur and Rohit from Noida, India launched a safe space for dating
One day, Shivam’s friend and roommate confided in him about the problems he faced as a gay person on dating apps, explaining the safety issues, catfishing and scams he’d experienced. Determined to help his friend, Shivam teamed up with co-founders Ankur and Rohit to create Glii, a platform exclusively for LGBTQ+ dating. Unlike other apps, Glii helps matches book LGBTQ+-friendly spots directly in the app for their first date. All accounts are also verified using artificial intelligence so users can always be sure they’re meeting a real person. And, thanks to a psychometric assessment, they can check their compatibility with matches before meeting. Next, the team plans to expand to Thailand and Southeast Asia.
