Threesome app 3nder completes $500,000 seed round

Free to download app allows "kinky and curious" people to arrange threesomes and plans to use angel investment to launch internationally

3nder, the app for arranging threesomes, has raised $500,000 in seed funding from two unnamed angel investors to fuel growth and marketing.

Launched last year, the London-based app enables “kinky, curious and openminded singles and couples” to match, exchange photos, group message and arrange meetings – while its incognito mode allows users to hide activities from Facebook friends.

Although the app is free to download, unlike other dating apps 3nder doesn’t use advertising so relies on charging for premium features through tiered monthly subscription packages.

The finance will help the app prep for a planned Series A round as it seeks to grow its user base. The company is also in talks with investors and entrepreneurs who might help 3nder launch internationally.

Dimo Trifonov, founder of 3nder, commented: “Nowadays more people are looking for relationships that are designed with more freedom in mind. Consensual non-monogamy for singles and couples is becoming more prevalent, especially among young people.

“We are building the first safe environment for open minded people where they can meet likeminded partners, and the response has been fantastic. We are also gender-blind and orientation-blind, so everyone is welcome.”

One of its angel investors commented: “Now that 3nder is close to reaching a million downloads, and the number of users has been growing rapidly in the past few months, it is evident that momentum is building, and that Trifonov has tapped an underserved market.”
