About Flokkr and our crowdfunding campaign
First of all:
Flokkr will launch in 2019.
There is no funding goal to be reached.
What is Flokkr?
Flokkr will be an innovative social media platform for individuals and organisations surrounding the community of gay and bisexual men, transgender and queer people or those questioning their sexual identity (GBTQ). Our aim is to create a safe, respectful and diverse web platform where adults can freely publish, share and discuss content and make social connections both online and in the real world.
How is Flokkr different to other gay apps and sites?
Flokkr will be a modern web application – no apps to install, no content restrictions imposed by app stores, which means adult content will be accepted.
Web technology has made great advancements lately and we will make use of that. You will be able to use Flokkr on most of your devices – iPhone, Android phone, iPad and other tablets, Mac, Windows, Linux desktop PCs and even some smart TVs – as long as your device has a relatively modern web browser, you can use Flokkr on it.
Most of the currently available social sites and apps for gay men suffer from one or more of the following:
- they rely on apps and therefore prohibit adult content;
- they are extremely limited in what you can do with them (e.g. only dating);
- they are technically no longer up to scratch, which makes them very slow and difficult to use across different devices;
- they are just full of sad selfies;
- they sell your personal data to Chinese investors.
Flokkr aims to so solve all this by building a truly comprehensive and innovative platform, that is blazing fast, fun to use, enables meaningful conversation, respects your privacy, is not full of annoying adverts and popups and all that for both singles and non-singles.
When will Flokkr be available?
You can already sign up to create an account, but the social media platform itself is still in development. We expect to launch a beta version of Flokkr some time between late summer and autum 2019. Behind the scenes we already have a prototype with limited features, but it is still too rough around the edges to be presentable. The public launch of the first non-beta version is expected to follow around the end of 2019 or early 2020, depending on the feedback from the beta phase.
Who is behind Flokkr?
Flokkr is a bootstrapped startup based in Manchester (UK), a vibrant city with a great LGBT community and history. Usually, startups with similar or even smaller ambitions have a team and somewhat deep pockets to get them started. Flokkr was founded by Nick (39), who is in fact the only person in the company. He works full-time (and more) on the project since the end of 2018, only relying on his own savings and skills.
How can I support Flokkr?
The number one best way to help is by spreading the word. Tell your mates about Flokkr and ask them to sign up on your social networks and in person.
We have also launched our own crowdfunding campaign. If you sign up and create a Flokkr account, you will have the chance to make contributions from as little as $1. If you contribute $5 or more you will start earning nice rewards. Crowdfunding contributions will help significantly to get Flokkr off the ground quicker, better and more stable.
Can I invest in Flokkr?
If you share our vision and want to become a pre-seed investor with a share in the company, please get in touch. We’re looking forward to getting to know you and discuss options. Although not set in stone, this option is meant for those who want to invest in the region of 50–200k USD/GBP/EUR.
Although the first version of the GBTQ platform will be launched later this year, there is still a long way to go to put all the big plans into practice – from design and development all the way to infrastructure and legal aspects. As of writing Flokkr is a 100% bootstrapped startup and pretty much everything is done by the founder himself. Bills are already starting to increase and eventually Flokkr will need a team behind it. Any support from the community would immensly help to make Flokkr a successful reality that all of you can enjoy.
Crowdfunding is a great way for individuals who believe in Flokkr to give as much or as little as they can afford to support the project whilst also getting some nice rewards in return.
