The sisters were on a mission to create a dating app that would go beyond “swiping right” and instead give everyone a chance at love. In 2015, Dawoon and her sisters appeared on the hit ABC show “Shark Tank,” where they generated waves for receiving the highest offer – and for turning it down. As Chief Dating Officer, Dawoon focuses on “the science of dating” to improve the app’s user experience and match results. She’s appeared on numerous outlets, from CNBC to Bloomberg. And, she’s given multiple talks on dating, technology, and entrepreneurship – most notably her 2015 TEDx, “The Beautiful Truth About Online Dating.”
