Their story: Founder Dustin Maxey wants to turn group messaging into group dating. GroupWink lets users tag friends they're hanging out with, create groups, and check out what other groups in the area are doing. You can search groups by topics like "dance," "chill," "have drinks," and can the choose age ranges and gender of other groups you'd like to meet up with.
The goal: Maxey says he wants to "mimic the natural process" of meeting people.
"Group are everywhere around the town," he says. The app, currently in beta aims to bring those groups together in a techie but organic fashion.
