Dating Service App Tinder Pledges Up To $1 Million in-app Advertising To Support Women

The firm is inviting applications from companies where at least 50 per cent of the founding team are women or identify as women

Location-based dating service major Tinder on Thursday announced it is pledging up to $1 million in in-app advertising to support women and others who identify themselves as women entrepreneurs in India.

“We are proud to have women driving growth within the organisation across various functions including management, product engineering, and design. We remain committed to our promise of opening doors for women around the world and this initiative is another step in this direction,” Taru Kapoor, GM, Tinder and Match Group, India, said in a statement.

Over 90 per cent of Tinder’s community is between the ages of 18-30, and for any women-owned business aimed at that cohort, the ads are intended to support their business, their network and help them speak directly to potential consumers.
