At Friendbase, we are building a vibrant virtual world for teens. Our community is populated by users (13+) who make new friends, take fun quizzes, and play games together. As opposed to a stand-alone app or game, Friendbase is continually evolving with additional content and experiences for its users.

Friendbase vision is to become a global platform for young teenagers all over the world. We want to teach teens to work together rather than against! Our core values are inclusion, entertainment, cultural globalization, education and safety.

We have created a massively scaleable product that is fun and sticky. With a mission to make the online world a friendlier place, we have made a deep commitment to ensure an environment that is both vibrant and welcome--incorporating intuitive safety features and top-of-the-line safety technology.

Entering a phase now where we are starting a research project with researchers from University West we are taking the next step to create toolsets to encourage decent behavior instead of only punishing/banning bad behavior.

How have we done so far? Friendbase has received some pretty impressive metrics after its release, with virtually no marketing spend. 600,000 user accounts have been created since the beginning of 2017. Friendbase is the winner of the innovation contest Swedish Startup Tel Aviv 2015, has been awarded $30, 000 to join Born Global Accelerator in South Korea, participated in the accelerator program TINC in Palo Alto, and are part of Facebook's FbStart program. In October 2018 we are chosen to pitch at Business Challenge in Stockholm and Startup Instanbul (one of 100 of 60 000 applicants).

Friendbase is sticky: our users (60% are girls between the ages of 13-16) are spending a lot of time on Friendbase. The average Friendbase user spends 20 minutes online spread over 4 sessions a day. With 35 000 Monthly Average Users and a retention rate of 30% we are set to grow. The platform is currently monetized through virtual goods; there are massive opportunities for organic brand integration, sellable content/certifications, and paid tiers. This will be developed during the Autumn 2018.

We have followed the Friendbase case from the early beginning at the Innovatum incubator, and we are very impressed with what the team have managed to achieve with very limited resources. It shows that talent and dedication of a few outstanding people can really make a difference. We are convinced that they will continue punching above their weight and given the right resources and support we firmly believe that Friendbase can become the next big global success in digital entertainment.

Carl Bjerkne Chairman of the Board at Mobile Storytelling AB

Friendbase is a great startup with a strong and diverse team running it. I think it´s great that they are creating a safe and fun environment for young people to hang out in and with a clear cross platform strategy. I really want to continue see what this company can do in the future.

Sean Percival Advisor at Palarin

Strong and complete team who has built up an impressive user base of hundreds of thousands already. Lots of upwards potential to grow further and monetize.
