GLOBE NEWSWIRE – Sep 23 – Sophomores at USC and UC Berkeley, Daniel Hanasab and Sean Toobi, have developed an app called Meetsy that is changing the way we initiate face-to-face conversations. In just a couple of months, Daniel and Sean have taken the start-up world by storm with tons of venture capital attention, Meetsy is now an incubated company through the University of Southern California’s affiliated Troy Labs, with many venture-backed start-up founders as mentors. According to its founders, Meetsy is the first „head-up“ social network platform where quality in-person conversation is king, not screen-time. The app notifies users in real-time of people with commonalities in the same room, allowing them to skip the swipes and make meaningful relationships.
