TECH CRUNCH – Mar 25 – Bae (Before Anyone Else) is a mobile dating app for Black people created by three students – Jordan Kunzika, Brian Gerrard and Justin Gerrard. They hosted an HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) tour which consisted of parties and mixers where people who matched on Bae could meet in person. Within a few weeks of their April 2015 launch, they reached 17K downloads, and have grown over ten times since. Similar to other dating apps, Bae users swipe right for those they’re interested in and left for those they’re not. According to the founders what makes Bae different is their algorithm to offer better matches.
