Developed by Sean Rad, Whitney Wolfe, Jonathan Badeen, Christopher Gulczynski, Joe Munoz and Justin Mateen and launched in September 2012, Tinder is a mobile matchmaking app that connects with users’ Facebook profiles to provide pictures and ages for other users to view.

The app gathers users’ information and analyzes their social graph to match them with candidates who are likely to be compatible based on location, number of mutual friends and common interests.

TechCrunch awarded Tinder the Crunchie Award for “Best New Startup of 2013.”
