Wtf is uKu?
🚀 We are on a mission
Despite spending more and more time online, people feel more isolated than ever. Current social apps are centered on individuals, and most communication apps are dull. We aim for most of our users' time to be spent with good friends, creating new memories and a sense of belonging. So, we are creating a new category between social & games.
✨ Our take
The best online interactions happen in multiplayer games where people come for the game and stay for the socialisation. Unfortunately, lot of people don’t define themselves as gamers and are still missing out! We believe gen-z deserve better. Gamer or not.
uKu is the junction between a discord voice chat and a mobile game. It allows groups of friends to meet and chill in a 3D room (= their "coloc"), live new adventures, customise and earn money along the way. Come for the communication, stay for the game.
👀 Current stage
- We assembled in July 21 to try a few ideas, prototype and learn during the summer.
- We pitched our vision to some of the best investors in the world and raised our pre-seed in Oct-Nov 21.
- Since Nov 21, we are busy building the alpha of uKu and testing w/ users on a weekly basis. We are now a team of +9 passionate builders distributed between Colombia & France. Adding hundreds of users on the waitlist every month (👋 Tiktok)
