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.

The idea of Fika was born when Denise Sandquist found her biological mother. The idea to connect people suitable for each other with AI was then shared with co-founder Oscar Xing Luo.

The revolutionary feature AI Find is built together with the social app Fika. With the help of new AI technology, users are connected based on physical and personal preferences. Fika is the social app where the relationships later are continued.
