Stitch provides a social platform for older adults looking for companionship and community. Online dating has become increasingly popular as more and more individuals turn to the Internet for socialization. However, today’s online dating apps tend to target the younger, Internet-savvy demographic, leaving few viable options for older adults, including those merely seeking companionship. Stitch addresses this gap by providing a web and mobile-based social platform tailored for the 50+ age group. By deploying a finely-tuned, cohesive combination of product features, revenue structures, and safety mechanisms, the platform prioritizes interests and activities over appearances, trust and safety over allure, and companionship along with romance.
