The App Revolutionizing How We Connect in the Modern World

If you’ve ever found yourself endlessly swiping through Tinder, Hinge or Bumble, thinking, “I think I might actually hate it here.”, you’re not alone. In fact, co-founders of Crossed, Manny Manzel and Conor Crighton, couldn’t agree more.

As a society, we’re at a pivotal moment in time where traditional social and professional networking apps are missing the mark in creating genuine and realistic connections. That’s why we developed Crossed, a platform where proximity and authenticity are at the core of every interaction.

But what exactly does proximity and authenticity entail? Consider this: while numerous apps today can connect you with people in different cities or countries, the real question is — how meaningful are these distant connections if you never get to meet? This is where Crossed revolutionizes modern-day online connections.

We encourage real, tangible connections by revealing the hidden potential of your everyday encounters.

Connecting you with people you’re literally crossing paths with every day but might not even know it.  

For us, it’s always been about finding a way to transform everyday encounters into potential friendships, romantic connections or even professional opportunities. So, instead of aimlessly scrolling through apps that leave you feeling disconnected, Crossed enables you to forge real connections by simply living life. 

As we gear up to launch Crossed, we invite you to join us on this journey to redefine the essence of connection, where your next worthwhile relationship could be just around the corner.

It’s a groundbreaking approach where your matches are a reflection of your daily activities and lifestyle choices, encouraging you to immerse yourself more in the real world and less in endless doom-swiping.
