The League, and exclusive, invite-only dating app for aspiring power couples, will launch today (October 9) in New Orleans at noon.
The League says the app caters to the intelligent, educated, and ambitious. The company handpicked the first 506 users in New Orleans based on degree, education institution, professional title, industry, and more.
Only roughly 10% of the 3022 applicants were accepted, all with an average age of 28.2. From the selected, the top employers are Tulane Medical Center, Shell, and Teach for America. Tulane, LSU, and Loyola are the three most represented schools among the group Other data The League told Silicon Bayou News is that the users primarily live in Uptown, the Lower Garden District, and Mid-City, and that the most popular job titles are analyst, attorney, and physician.
The app is now available in over 35 cities and continually adding new locations.
“Think of The League as a members only club, but one with a killer singles scene,” explains The League’s founder and CEO, Amanda Bradford. “We’re a community for intelligent, ambitious and high-achieving people that are looking for an equal partner.”
After the waiting list joins the app, others can join for a membership fee. Learn more about The League at theleague.com.
