Have you ever wondered where the idea of founding Fika came from? Let’s meet the 2 founders of Fika to hear this interesting sharing!
Denise Sandquist (Founder, CEO) and Oscar Xing Luo (Founder, CTO) first met in September 2015, when both were project managers for Nordic’s largest student project, Project China – a collaboration between the Stockholm School of Economics and the Royal Swedish Institute of Technology. During their time together, Denise and Oscar became good friends. The two worked together for a year, and became friends ever since. In 2019, the two came up with the idea of starting a business, decided to return to Asia, choosing Vietnam because they saw the potential here, and in addition, this is also Denise’s second hometown.
Vietnamese market is very dynamic and has potential opportunities.
The idea behind founding Fika
The idea of founding Fika arose after two founders realized that around them there were many people “complaining” about how difficult it was to find a lover, to go on a date with them. The two realized that the online dating market in Vietnam has many problems, and is not suitable, not “enough” to the needs of the majority. There are a lot of foreign apps advertised here, but only a few have features that match the “Asian way” of dating, especially for female users. And so Fika’s two founders have come up with Fika – a quality female-focused social and dating app in Asia!
6 months, 400,000+ downloads, and the ambition to be the best dating app in Asia
