Founder's Story

From Vietnam to Sweden and back

It all started seven years ago when I was back in Vietnam looking for my biological mother. Thanks to a viral Facebook post shared by hundreds of thousands of strangers I was finally reunited with my biological mother after only 18 days.

“This makes me think about the importance of connections. I want to repay the Vietnamese people who have helped me unconditionally.”

This is how the spark of Fika was lit. The idea was to create a safe social and dating app that focused on connecting people most suitable for each other with the help of AI.
