[prMac.com] Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands - LupUp Ltd today is proud to announce the release of its new app named LupUp which helps iOS and Android users meet cool new people in popular social venues around their city. As soon as a user enters a LupUp venue, they can instantly see who else is there, and interact with the people they see through instant and photo messaging. LupUp's list of venues includes the hottest bars, nightclubs, malls and social hotspots around New York and Chicago, and they're adding new locations daily.
Inside the app, LupUp's map function shows users the coolest places to dine, shop, and drink in their city, with an emphasis on atmosphere and quality of people. Aside from just helping its users make new friends, LupUp partners with its venues to get offer exclusive, customized discounts for app users. "Our goal is to create real life friendships. This means connecting our users and then giving them a reason to meet up face to face. We do this by providing them with awesome discounts on food, drinks and even personalized sales on their favorite brands at the mall" said Kasper Jakobsen - CEO LupUp Ltd.
LupUp is the ultimate icebreaker application. Everyone can recall a moment where they have seen someone out in public who they thought would be interesting, but missed the opportunity to connect with that person. LupUp lets you avoid asking yourself "what might have been?"
The reason LupUp has so much potential is because unlike other dating and social networking apps, the people you meet on LupUp are real people in the same venue at the same time. This means that users can sit and make new friends from the comfort of their own table or bar stool, and if it goes well, they can actually meet that person face to face.

"We've been astounded by how our special offers have helped our users to make new friends" said Jakobsen. "Sometimes all it takes is 30% off a bottle of champagne to get two people, or even a group, to meet up and make friends." LupUp is aggressively acquiring new venues and hopes to expand to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami and Houston in the near future.
LupUp is unique in that they do not rely on the installation of beacon technologies in order to set up or operate a venue. This gives the company the ability to scale rapidly and supports their growth objectives. "Were partnering with new venues each day and were really excited to create something that genuinely helps people grow their friendship circle and have fun while doing it." Said Mr. Jakobsen. "Our goal is to be in every major city around the world in the next three years."
