Pioneering App for the LGBTQ Community Launches Crowdfunding Campaign on StartEngine to Fund Continued Growth and Expansion
NEW YORK, NY (MAY 23, 2018) – LGBT Media Inc. – the company behind city building game QutieLife (formerly PrideFest) and inclusive, relationship-focused social app LGBTQutie – today announced a new crowdfunding campaign to further accelerate LGBTQutie’s growth and expansion, including internationally. Hosted by StartEngine Capital LLC and supported by strategic partner and iconic entertainment brand Atari®, the crowdfunding campaign will provide a unique opportunity for anyone to invest in and help expand LGBTQutie, a social app that facilitates meaningful relationships and connections for the LGBTQ community.
LGBTQutie was created after the co-founders recognized that most dating apps either cater to heterosexual relationships or focus solely on gay men or lesbian women. In addition, most current dating apps are hook-up based, making it frustrating for LGBTQ people looking for long-term relationships, friendships or meaningful connections. For these reasons, there was a need for a more inclusive, relationship-focused app for the LGBTQ community.
As more than just another dating app, LGBTQutie is a comprehensive and specialized platform that was made with the entire LGBTQ community in mind. It provides users with content that is relevant to them, including LGBTQ news, blogs and events. In addition, the app is unique in that it provides users the ability to send in-app video messages to one another as a means of user verification.
LGBTQutie has gained significant traction and credibility in the dating and social networking space and has now launched its crowdfunding campaign to allow anyone to invest in this dynamic, fast-growing app. LGBTQutie looks forward to continued growth and expansion and needs community support to move it to the next level.
“By investing in the future of connectivity through LGBTQutie, you will be helping people become a part of a diverse and inclusive community like never before,” said Rachel Kimelman, co-founder of LGBTQutie, a division of LGBT Media Inc. “These funds will also help LGBTQutie expand to an international market.”
“We’ve been extremely proud to work with LGBTQutie ever since establishing our partnership,” said Fred Chesnais, CEO of Atari. “We feel it’s important to support LGBT Media Inc. and hope everyone will join us in this effort to further strengthen LGBTQutie’s growth and influence among the LGBTQ community.”
“We are thrilled to have Atari behind us in this endeavor,” added Jordan Weiss, co-founder of LGBTQutie. “We have developed a great partnership with them in the past year and it means a lot to have their support in this meaningful and socially-impactful endeavor.”
The LGBTQutie crowdfunding campaign is available for a limited time on StartEngine, one of the leading equity crowdfunding platforms in the U.S., connecting everyday investors with tomorrow’s progressive companies. The funds from this crowdfunding campaign will allow LGBTQutie to enhance its marketing methods, continue to develop an integrated user experience, and provide more tools for user profile customization.
