Join Us for a Conversation with Startup Dating App Founder, Ray Ficken

  • Lovve Enterprise Headquarters 1633 Broadway 28th Floor New York, NY (map)

Connect, Chat Beta Testing, and Hear from Dating Expert, Gabi Lovve
(Sponsored by Smartbeer. We'll Have Wine Too!)


We're not the only one trying to solve our frustrations with the dating space. Ray Ficken, founder of Updateme, is too!

A couple of years ago Ray was at home on a Saturday afternoon thumbing through Facebook and Plenty of Fish when the desire to post a status update on POF triggered - "Anyone wanna go for Happy Hour?" 

The thought birthed Updateme, a social dating platform that allows users to broadcast status updates to initiate conversations and discover potential matches based on common interests. 

Updateme is now available in the App Store but before they attract users, feedback is needed! 

In the spirit of collaboration, we're helping Updateme curate men and women for Beta Testing. Sunday evening we'll connect, talk  the app, and receive a few dating "tips" from Dating Expert, Gabi Lovve. 

Following the event and if you then choose to Beta Test with Updateme, we'll ask that you:

  • Download the app and be active on it for the 12 days following
  • Join the Facebook Updateme Beta Group for communication purposes during the 12 days
  • Dial into two (2) of the scheduled calls to provide feedback OR email detailed and honest thoughts / feedback as it arises
  • Help Updateme create an offering that's desired! 

In return for your full participation during the Beta Test Period, you'll connect deeper with each other, focus on your dating life and we'll give you $100! 

Join us! You never know who you'll meet!! :)
