Our story

We didn’t like dating apps, so we created one.

Dissatisfied by the current choice of dating apps out there,  Flo, Magda and Schorsch (who met at a virtual cofounder event in 2020) decided to do better.

Wasn’t the dating app market already very mature and overcrowded? Yes. But this is exactly the time to innovate – when no one else is.

The vast majority of dating apps out there focus on KPIs, that mainly help the business – not the customers. This is understandable, as investors want to see short term success and returns. FUSE is completely bootstrapped and is not taking on any external investments.

So we sat together and came up with the dating app, that we, and the many people we asked always wanted. How? We paper-tested everything. Each feature, that made it into the final iteration of the app was either wished for or confirmed by a representative group of users, that represent our target audience.

Our Mission

Whereas other dating apps focus on increasing “time spent on app” to maximize profit, we don’t believe this is sustainable in the longterm. We therefore also don’t want you to have to go on 20 dates, before you find your partner in crime.


Less is more – a dedicated focus on quality over quantity

Why are we doing this? Doesn’t this hurt our business? No, as in the longterm it will actually pay off for the platform,. Happy users will attract other people currently dissatisfied with the choice of dating apps out there. This outweighs potential short-terms gains from purely focusing on keeping our users hooked on getting more dates. 


Our Team

Fuse was founded in 2023 by Georg, Flo and Henrique at  a virtual co-founder meetup. The team operates out of Vienna, Austria and Munich, Germany.
Disillusioned with the current offerings of dating-app, we set out to develop an app, that puts the individual user needs at the center of it all. Even though we all have profound industry experience in dating + social networking., we decided to rethink the entire process. 

Product, Strategy & Operations
Georg has his roots in App Economy & E-commerce and  worked at the core-team of 2 successful dating apps before. He decided to take things to the next level and left his first startup to develop an app to love forever.

Marketing & Social Media
Henrique is a passionate storyteller and deeply fond of all things human. Never afraid of bringing a critical and creative perspective to the table, she’s the brain behind Fuse’s marketing projects and on top of all things PR-related. 

Technology & Development
Flo is our technology wizard. He makes sure, that our data is 100% safe and everything will scale properly, once the network starts growing. He understands assembler and plays 4D chess while we bore him with anything non-tech 🙂 (Just in case anyone still has doubts, that he could pull it off. )
