MY PERSONAL STORY
Two years ago, I struggled to make meaningful connections while on maternity leave with my second daughter. As a driven entrepreneur, I wanted to meet other ambitious, hard-working women but had trouble finding them. I realized that meeting like-minded women easily is a challenge. Not everyone is an extrovert, meet-ups can be hard and intimidating, and other online platforms aren’t always successful.
As women go through various life transitions – moving to a new city, career change, caring for a baby, new relationship status, coming back from maternity leave or illness – the need to make meaningful connections arises. The challenge typically is not being able to easily find and meet up with like-minded women who live nearby and share similar interests and activities.
Personal experiences, and the fact that feelings of loneliness and isolation are known to be increasingly problematic, I began thinking of what a women-only social networking platform would look like and how it could make forming meaningful friendships a little easier, so I founded Locelle.
I hope you make meaningful connections on the platform and stay tuned for more exciting features that are coming up!
