Online matchmaking space has now gained a bit of momentum in the country, with players like Bharatmatrimony.com, Shaadi.com, Jeevansathi.com already in the space yet there is another startup led by internet entrepreneurs – Hitesh Dhingra, Ex-Founder, Letsbuy.com, Sachin Bhatia, Ex-Founder, MakeMyTrip & Rahul Kumar, Ex-Product Head, MakeMyTrip that has started making buzz in this space.
Targeted towards the singles looking at meaningful, long term relationships that could over time culminate into matrimony, Trulymadly went live this Valentine’s day i.e. 14th February.
While safety is the main concern when it comes to online matchmaking, the website provides Trust Score for each profile based on one’s social channels, ID proof, phone number, employment verification, etc. So, if one connects via LinkedIn or Facebook profile and provides the valid phone number, the score goes up! Thus Fake profiles are easy to spot and its system junks it at the onset.
We caught up with Rahul Kumar, Co-Founder, Trulymadly to know more about the portal, technology behind and his views on online matchmaking space in India.
