For the first time in Nepal, a US-based Nepali technology company Astro Veda Pvt. Ltd. has launched a AstroPod dating app where you can get your match made in stars!
The company released the app today, Asar 10, at the Radisson Hotel in Lazimpat with the goal of assisting people in finding their ideal mate where there is a lack of dedicated dating apps in Nepal.
With its tagline “Made in Stars“, it is targeting the local market at large where people have been looking for a reliable dating app that they could end up marrying their match.
Regarding the app, AstroPod CEO Paribesh Koirala shared,
“This software is distinct from other typical dating apps. It includes the option to select the ideal match using Vedic astrological matchmaking. Before selecting the ideal partner, one can also use the compatibility test facility.”
The Story Behind AstroPod Dating App
Back in 2014, Paribesh Koirala met his co-founders Rikesh and Vivek which led them to start a software company Astro Veda. In the meantime, they met Guru Samundra who also joined them to do a project that would serve astrological services to the people around the globe through an app.
This then turned into a company which is now employing 40 professionals and serving more than a million users across the world.
Astro Veda is a Nepal-based business that offers astrological services to those in need with the intention of simplifying their lives and giving them guidance on how to lead happy lives.
According to over a million users, the main cause of most people’s unhappiness is their lack of knowledge about themselves and their relationships with others.
The founders shared that their solution was inspired by this particular realization which made them to create: AstroPod Dating App- Made in the Stars.
According to them, they have always wanted to create a mobile application as it offers the happiness and connection that all people need throughout their lives. their initial goal was to make an instant messenger. This was only possible for them through the path of the Astrology rather than mere technology and idea.
Most of the people believe that stars have a strong hold in their life and the path they follow. Moreover, Nepali people highly rely upon the stars and zodiacs before reaching to the decision of finding a perfect match. Identifying them early would be a great advantage and asset for them.
Hence they have kept their motto – “Love is not in the air, its cliche; Actually the love is in the stars.”
Why AstroPod Dating App? What problem are they solving?
Popular dating apps simply aim to persuade users to upload attractive photos that genuinely demonstrate their personality features, lifestyle, and emotional state, coupled with a brief bio that they would place a lot of attention on.
Also, they continue to use the old-fashioned, time-consuming methods of filling out lengthy forms in order to find their ideal mate.
The genuine personal characteristics and emotional characteristics of each person are not being identified by these dating apps, despite their attempts to categorize and identify each person with a set of questions to answer in order to locate the PERFECT MATCH.
In both situations, it takes a number of “HIT and TRIAL” conversations and dates to determine whether the person or online match is a good fit for the individual.
