CEO Peekawoo, Philippines
Peekawoo founder and CEO Valenice Balace says Peekawoo was born out of her want to create an app that would have less competition in the Philippines. She was single during that time, She admits to trying some of the dating apps out there and wanted a more friendly version. She says:
Some of us will not admit to trying dating sites, I myself have tried some and I have to admit I felt a little bit desperate while trying it because it was either you upload a photo and guys go through every girl like a catalogue or, like one of the apps I tried, which had location-based service. Within minutes someone wanted to go to my house.
We are a fully-operated female team and has a more wholesome and friendly approach to dating.We’re working on an aim for actual legit first dates and not hook ups nor marriage. Our main goal is to create an environment where people can meet online, go on first dates and not feel desperate or cheap. It’s just really about expanding your network, meeting people and enjoying your 20s.
