Justin McLeod is founder and CEO of Hinge, the relationship app that helps you discover new people through friends. He grew up in Louisville, KY and studied at Colgate University. After a few years in management consulting, Justin attended Harvard Business School and decided to follow his passion for connecting people. He founded Hinge in February 2011 and launched the previous version of the app, legacy Hinge, in February 2013.
As a romantic and protagonist of a real life love story, Justin was upset by the negative swipe culture free dating apps had created. So in October 2016, he relaunched Hinge as the first members-only community for relationship-seeking millennials. So, the company is now firmly embedded within the landscape of a millennial revolution that combines technology and dating.
We spoke to Justin about his story, how he plans to revolutionise the sector and how machine learning and AI (such as the nobel winning prize algorithm, The Gale-Shapley Algorithm, more commonly referred to as "The Stable Marriage Problem") are being marshalled by his team to form the most efficient processes.
