With national headlines about how Millennial’s & Gen Z are the loneliest generations, young social media influencers and Founder/CEO Greg Nimer collaborated to launch the new Dating/Social App Sparkze. A groundbreaking, free, relationship-making app where people meet virtually and get to know each other through games without the pressure of meeting IRL.
As recently seen on Yahoo! & FOX LA, Sparkze wants to help young people’s mental health and combat loneliness by helping guide people in showing their true selves through icebreakers and video features to build real genuine connections. With this immersive new experience, you can play games and talk to new people in your area who are all searching for something new. Sparkze uses a fun game show format, eases social interaction, produces authentic content at scale, and even gives people a shot at fame.
When developing the app, the team asked themselves, “why is society as connected as we are also the loneliest, and why are digital natives (adults 18-30) struggling more than any other generation?” They found that:
1.- Over 70% of digital natives express feelings of loneliness
2.- One in five GenZ is without a single friend
3.- 48% have tried dating apps, but only 8-10% are still using them
Dating apps are local, but not social…and Social apps do social, but not local. So the team created Sparkze, where you can get to know the actual person before meeting them. The pandemic has changed how we will live and socialize. At the same time, according to studies, today’s youth are increasingly lonely. Now it’s time to leverage those interests with gameplay that helps people interact with and meet others. Founder & CEO Greg Nimer has 20+ years of leadership in consumer products, eCommerce, business development, design, and distribution.
