At UNBLND, we believe in the power of community. One year on exchange in Canada, Montréal changed Adriaan’s vision of the world. Our journey began with a simple idea: to create a platform where people could connect on interests, share experiences, and build genuine relationships. Today, we're excited to share our progress, as we continue to grow and thrive, as do our members!
Our Strong and Growing Community
Since the launch of UNBLND in October 2020, our community has been growing since. We now welcomed 130,000 users and counting. What makes our community unique is its interest-first approach and the layered anonymity, which makes it more privacy-friendly and comfortable. Members are not just (nick)names on a screen; they are peers or friends who have gone beyond virtual interactions, often meeting in real life at carefully curated events, sometimes organised by ourselves, but more often by members themselves!
Connecting Beyond Screens
One of our proudest achievements has been the way our community transcends the digital realm. We believe in the power of real-world interactions, and our members share this sentiment. UNBLND users often come together at events, forging bonds that last a lifetime. It's not just an app; it's a lifestyle, a way to connect with like-minded individuals.
Embroidered Merchandise: A Symbol of Unity
To strengthen our community's sense of belonging, we've introduced exclusive embroidered merchandise. Our members proudly wear UNBLND apparel, creating a visual representation of their unity. By purchasing these items, our community members are not just investing in merchandise; they are investing in the idea of togetherness.
The Unwavering Support of Our Community
Our success wouldn't have been possible without the support of passionate individuals, like Jeroen for example. Jeroen is a dedicated member of our community and has lent his expertise to help us debug some application issues. It's this spirit of collaboration and shared purpose that defines UNBLND.
Grant from the Flemish Government
We are happy to announce that UNBLND has received a second VLAIO grant from the Flemish government in Belgium. This endorsement reflects their belief in our company's potential for growth and the positive impact we can have on society. With this grant, we're not only securing our future, but we can grow our team and expand our reach to help more individuals find their sense of belonging.
Making an Impact Beyond Borders
At UNBLND, we understand that loneliness and feeling different can affect people from all walks of life. We're not just building a company; we're creating a movement. Our platform has already started making a significant impact by providing a sense of community to those who need it most.
In October 2023, we’re planning on going on a road trip together with community members, or anyone interested. Wanna join? Email email@example.com.
Attracting Purpose-Driven Organisations
We're proud to attract purpose-driven organisations that share our vision of community and togetherness. Many organisations are eager to utilise our platform to bring their own communities together. Our commitment to connecting people aligns perfectly with these clients' goals.

Fundraising for the Future
As we continue to expand our platform and reach more people, we are also actively fundraising to fuel our growth. We believe in the potential of UNBLND to become a household name, a platform that brings people together in meaningful ways.
In conclusion, at UNBLND, our growth is a testament to the power of community and the belief that we all thrive when we come together. We invite potential investors to join us on this exciting journey as we continue to build a platform that connects, unites, and makes a difference in the lives of countless individuals. Together, we grow stronger, and together, we create a world where no one ever feels truly alone.
