About us

The Inner Circle is the brainchild of David Vermeulen. In 2012, after a long term relationship came to an end, he registered for an online dating website for the first time. Within days of joining, he deleted his profile. He found the online dating world to be too concerned with amassing quantity rather than providing a quality experience for each user.

This inspired David to create his own dating platform, one tailored to the lives of like-minded singles. A community that cultivates authentic connections in real life.

The Inner Circle is an independent tech company that never raised any funding. The app is now live in over 50 cities with over 1.8 million members. In 2018 The Inner Circle was awarded winner of Deloitte Fast 50 for being the fastest growing technology company in The Netherlands. In 2017 The Inner Circle was crowned dating app of the year and rising star at the Deloitte Fast 50.

We are a small but mighty team incredibly proud of the thousands of success stories.
