Why are we building Doubble?
🍀Our vision is to create a pocket of togetherness in a crowded world
We represent a generation that spends the most time on social products that promised to connect us, but find ourselves competing for likes, followers and attention …
Despite having the most social products, our generation spends more time alone than ever:
Here’s the thing: The social products we use are not designed to create authentic experiences.
Doubble is reinventing the experience of connecting.
Our vision is to create a pocket of togetherness in a crowded world
Between the soloness of dating apps and the crowdedness of social media, we’re building a unique togetherness in our close friend social network.
Here you’re together with a handful of friends rather than being in front of hundreds of followers.
It’s about creating an experience together rather than competing in a popularity contest.
It’s about being authentic rather than crowd-pleasing in the hunt for the next like.
For more than 100.000 years we’ve been playing, meeting new people and experiencing together in close groups.
We want to take that togetherness into the social products we use.
Therefore, we’re on a mission to build a close friend social network
We’ve taken the first step with our double dating app: Doubble.
How does our product work?
🫂 You meet new people together with your friends rather than alone.
Doubble is a double dating app and what makes us unique is our social concept:
You add your friends
You match with someone
Your friend matches their friend
The four of you get a group chat together.
Where are we going?
🚀We’re growing fast.
We started in Denmark and our results seem to indicate we’re building something our generation needs:
35% of gen z dating users are on Doubble in Denmark
We’ve had 800 swipes per minute in 2023
Reached +100.000 users
We’re expanding internationally. What we did in Denmark, we just did 5x faster in Sweden.
We’re backed by talented investors who believe in our vision:
Everyday we’re getting messages from people asking us when they can use Doubble in their country. Therefore, we’re launching in new European markets the next months.

🎯Ready for a new chapter?
Two years ago, Doubble was just an idea, born out of a desire to create a more authentic experience of connecting in a way no social products we had ever tried could.
Today, we’re proud to have become an integral part of the lives of tens of thousands of young people in Scandinavia.
Now we’re looking to invite more talented people to unlock the global potential of Doubble.
