351. Taly Matiteyahu – Blink: An Audio Only Speed Dating App

By night, Taly works to build Blink, an audio-only blind speed dating app inspired by a revelatory experience at a blackout restaurant. Making connections with strangers based on conversation alone, free of looks-driven assumptions, sparked the thought: would people date a wider variety of people and find more satisfying relationships if they were able to make an emotional connection with someone before swiping left? In 2020, Taly finally began turning the vision into reality and hopes to change online dating’s looks-first paradigm and, one day, move the concept beyond the dating world. By day, Taly works at an AI-powered legal tech company as a Product Manager, having previously worked as a lawyer at a NYC law firm and as a legal operations professional at Netflix and Datadog. Taly earned her Bachelor’s degree from New York University in 2011 and her Juris Doctorate from Columbia Law School in 2015. Website: http://www.theblinkdate.com
