ASKWHO, the UAE’s latest innovative social media group app, has successfully raised one million US Dollars from a series of well-known angel investors during its latest funding round.
Designed to improve people’s mental health and promote a sense of community, ASKWHO invites users to join localized group discussion pages that focus on particular interests such as fitness, outdoors, art, lifestyle, travel, and wellness within a certain city.
This organized, topic-based format makes it easy for users to meet like-minded individuals, see posts about things that interest them, share tips, gain knowledge, and feel a better sense of belonging. Most of all, ASKWHO aims to help people turn online friends into real ones.
Michael Askew, CEO of ASKWHO, said: “Communities are so important and they have been around since the beginning of time. So, we want to provide our users with a ‘home from home’, a place they can belong to and depend on. We alleviate the pain points caused by current social media applications and promote doing more together in real life”.
Matthew Gaziano, COO of ASKWHO, said: “We’re excited to continue our growth and build on our current success. We hope to become the region’s market leader in the social media sector.”
The application is available to download for free from the App Store, and it will also be featured very soon on Google Play. Users can also unlock additional features when they upgrade to a premium account for AED 24.99 per month.
