Below is our recent interview with Ali Maggioncalda, Founder & CEO at Lovewick:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?
A: Lovewick helps couples stay in love once they’ve found it. Our app includes a question card game, community-generated date ideas, research-based tips, and a place to keep “forget-me-nots” like coffee orders, shoe sizes, and anniversaries. While many apps optimize for time on screen, Lovewick uses technology to help couples meaningfully connect offline through new conversations and experiences. We’ve been live for about a year and have 4.9 stars on the US App Store and over 100k users. It’s been an exciting ride so far!
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: We’ve partnered with really strategic investors, including Corazon Capital, which is a fund managed by former Match Group, Tinder, and OkCupid executives. Lovewick is definitely not a dating app, but there are a lot of insights from that space that inform our design and business decisions. For instance, over 40% of Americans have met a romantic partner online, and we want Lovewick to feel like a natural next step in their journey as a couple.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: Lovewick is meant to help couples feel more connected, appreciated, and adventurous. Our features all tie back to those goals, so that’s our north star in terms of product development.
Q: What can we expect from your company in the next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: Our priorities are product and team. We’re a small, scrappy team, and we are assimilating user feedback daily.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: Even though Lovewick is meant to feel fun and playful, it’s rooted in relationship science and psychology. Our founder studied Human Behavioral Biology at Stanford and then did her grad school Dissertation on design, tech, and modern love. Using Lovewick isn’t just fun; it’s aligned with the research on what makes for a great, lasting relationship.
