GirlCrew – it’s a global online platform and app that helps women make new friends, wherever they are in the world. It all started when a young woman, left alone due to coupled-up friends, needed someone to go to a concert with. A short note posted online, in search of a buddy, turned into GirlCrew. It has since saved women from bad dates, helped people overcome challenges at work and even sourced witnesses for weddings. Meet its co-founders, yes co-founders, because three heads are better than one.
