After experiencing how hard it was to find other like-minded people when they moved cities, co-founders Jay Stockwell and Cameron Slabosz decided to do something about it.
They took lessons learned from building a real-time credit risk engine (that went on to process over a million loans) and created their Zinger Engine.
In finance, you have a credit score that is designed to predict how likely you are to repay your loan.
In Zinger, you have an Zinger Score that is designed to predict your level of like-mindedness.
We then wanted to make it more fun, so the natural next step was to turn it into a game format.
