Tinder for crowdfunding investors is Tendr

A new app launched in the United Kingdom last week to help investors find quick find opportunities.

Tendr, created by Lex Deak, pulls together a smattering of equity crowdfunding platforms to give users a swipe left-swipe right experience like Tinder. Results from the first week on iOS and Android app stores will be shared Thursday, Tender told Through the Cracks.

Tendr incorporates campaigns from platforms like Crowdfunder.co.uk, AngelList, AngelsDen, InvestingZone, CrowdCube and Seedrs.

Deak, founder of investor network QVentures, plans to expand the app for investors in other parts of Europe in the future.

Get Tindered

Tendr is definitely not the first platform to use Tinder qualities, either in crowdfunding or news.

Journalism-focused crowdfunding platform Beacon Reader has something Tinder-like on their front page.

Other Tinderized apps for news include Daily by Buffer and Shuffle News.

One feature suggested by the blog End of Journalism  that is missed by Tinder-like apps: What about chat?

If there are other people out there who have common causes in crowdfunding or are interested in the same news stories you like to read, why not allow them to talk or connect them in social media or something?
