Instamour | @instamour

Instamour promises customers no more bad dates by allowing them to get to know prospective dates before divulging their personal information. Instamour is the only product that allows customers to experience actual interpersonal chemistry (or the lack thereof), thus eliminating the wasted time, expense and disappointment of a date where there is no chemistry.  Instamour accomplishes this with video profiles, live video chat, virtual phone calls, and instant messaging all without giving out your phone number, real name, or email address.  We are a mobile app for speed dating from the comfort of your own home.  Unlike static sites where users may Photoshop their profile picture it's impossible to fake a live video on Instamour.

BarWithMe.TV | @BarWithMeTV

BarWithMe.TV brings fans of common SPORTS,TV SERIES, and MOVIES together for public viewing parties at bars across their city.

Locations also have the option of hosting FAN MEET-UPS in conjunction with the viewing party in which attending fans will have the chance to interact with one another through show related activities.
