uHoo is a mobile app that connects people to people at coffee shops.
The user can pre-register their preferred topics in advance in the app to find other available uHoo users in coffee shops near you. uHoo allows people to meet and discuss these predetermined topics that range from shared hobbies they have in common all the way to political affiliations and beliefs. uHoo can be a substitute for Meetups. It enables you to meet new people near your location(s) at your preferred time! Also, the user can meet new people at coffee shops with no rejection which is also an extreme benefit for introverts. In addition, uHoo has B2B function. Local businesses can post their ads, coupons, and event info on uHoo.
uHoo is planning to collect all data: such as who clicked, which ads, what time, etc. while also providing a detailed report to local business owners.

She moved to Los Angeles in 2004 and entered Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California (USC).
uHoo was founded and began development in 2017. The initial concept of this new app was out of wanting to solve her own issue which was to meet new people with shared common interests. Having moved from a different country it was not especially easy to find and meet new friends. Due to her intensive IT experiences, an overwhelming sense of purpose began, and was pursued to develop a mobile app and a website.
Noticing that there are not many local businesses that are making efforts to implement campaigns and advertisements. Also, while thinking about how to solve this problem of meeting like-minded people she developed an idea to support local businesses.
Her dream is to launch uHoo not only in US metropolitan cities, such as LA, San Francisco, Boston, NY, but also launch it in different countries and major cities, such as Tokyo, London, others.
