Press Release

January 6, 2014

Provo – LikeBright, Inc., a provider of online and mobile dating and matchmaking software and services, acquired substantially all of the assets of MatchMate, a Provo-based matchmaking software company.

MatchMate was founded in 2012 by several Utah entrepreneurs, including John Richards, who also was involved in Seattle entrepreneurship in the 1990s in the yellow pages industry, including early involvement in InfoSpace. Richards will also invest in LikeBright's current round and serve on its advisory board.

"We are pleased to welcome MatchMate and John to the LikeBright family. John is a strong entrepreneur with a wealth of relevant knowledge and connections, and the MatchMate transaction is consistent with our strategy to continue to build scale in our business,” said Nick Soman, CEO of LikeBright.
