Match group acquires Harmonica
Match Group, the online dating giant with a market cap of over $20 billion that owns different dating websites and apps including Tinder, OkCupid, PlentyOfFish, and Match.com has acquired Egyptian online dating startup Harmonica, the Dallas-headquartered company announced today in a statement to MENAbytes, without disclosing financial details of the transaction.
Founded in early 2017 by Sameh Saleh, Tamer Saleh, Shaymaa Aly & Aly Khaled, Harmonica’s app that’s carefully designed for Muslims helps users find a potential life partner. The app, as a statement by Match Group notes, approaches mobile matchmaking with respect to local traditions and cultures.
