About

Our mission is to create real friendships between likeminded people. By inspiring & empowering our community to host a local experience or activity to share with the world!

What is Friendin

Make Friends, Share experiences

Friendin is a two-way marketplace social app that connects people who have an experience to share with those who are looking for an experience to try. Through shared experiences on Friendin, providers and users build real connections with real people from all around the world, based on similar compatibility traits.

 

Users gain access to unique and distinctive experiences shared by reliable providers and fully immerse themselves in the culture of the experience. Providers can effortlessly captivate an ever-growing audience by showcasing incredible experiences, whether it is zip lining through the Amazon or watching the sunrise atop a volcano in Antigua to discovering the best Waterfalls in the Blue Mountains.

 

Create a personalised account and set up shop to find the best experiences for you with tailored search results. Social connections highlight new friends in close proximity, with friends suggested based on our unique algorithm. Discover something you’ve always wanted to experience, simply save it to your wish list, purchase it directly though the App or even swipe it up to invite a friend.

 

Let Friendin find you new friends, to create experiences worth sharing.

Our Vision

Our vision is to build real connections over shared experiences. At Friendin we believe that friendships are built when incredible experiences are shared and those special moments are captured forever. Our aim is to bring people together, create life long friendships and create happiness and enrichment for our community.

 

Our marketplace is built around the idea that experiences are created everyday by everyday people and we believe that every single person has a skill, hobby or interest that they can offer on Friendin. Friendin is a platform that allows individuals as well as existing businesses to provide unique experiences, leisure activities and creative products to people looking to discover new and exciting things.

 

Our goal is to challenge the status quo and educate people that they can create an extra income away from their 9-5 jobs and even make a new business out of something they are passionate about and want to share with the world.

Charity

Mark & Rebecca – the Co Founders of Friendin have always believed in giving back and creating positive change. Mark & Rebecca’s aim was simply to educate and encourage the spread of good will though Friendin to help work towards making our world a better place for all. Any money that is kindly donated from our users or hosts will go to a nominated charity cause that really strives to make a positive change in our world!

 

Friendin allows every user to simply donate a proportion of their earnings to make a positive difference, it is not compulsory it is simply to encourage and promote positive change.
