Cheek pitched an earlier version of her app, a card game of sorts, on ABC’s Shark Tank. She didn’t receive a warm reception from the sharks, but over 3,000 interested viewers reached out to her as a result, she said.
Cheek was also named one of NYC’s top 100 tech influencers in 2014 by AlleyWatch. We’re excited to chat with her about the New York tech scene, her experiences on Shark Tank and the future of dating.
