Ignighter CEO Adam Sachs On Group Dating, India Strategy

16 May, 2011

Founded in 2008, Ignighter is a group dating site that fits into the niche between matrimonial sites and social networking, offering young Internet users an online platform for organizing informal meets in the real world, where they can decide whom to date. With the number of registered users from Asia rising fast (it is adding 7000 Indian users on average on a daily basis), the company decided to shift its focus from USA to Asia.

In an exclusive video interview, New Yorker Adam Sachs, the 28-year-old CEO of Ignighter.com talks to VCCircle on the sidelines of the Wharton India Economic Forum in Philadelphia. The group dating site has raised $3 million in Series A funding from a group of high profile investors including Indian angels Rajan Anandan, Sasha Mirchandani, one of the founding members of Mumbai Angels and Managing Director, BRV India and Sunjay Guleria, CEO of Exclusively.in.
