About Electric Courage
Electric Courage is all about confidence. It is a mobile application that empowers users to flirt with others around them, by providing a low-risk and comfortable environment. Users check-in to locations such as bars, nightclubs, and special events. They can then see how others are flirting, or throw out a flirt of their own. Who knows? They might hit it off with that special someone.
The inception of Electric Courage began with a thrilling moment; in fact, it’s one that some (many) of us would be familiar with:
“The idea stemmed from one of the conversations we were having as a group. My teammate was telling us about a conference he was attending the week prior and how he locked eyes with a girl from across the room. He was dead sure that she also thought they had a moment but, by the time he had decided to go back and introduce himself, she was nowhere to be found. A few hours passed and he was on a flight back home. We realized that we'd all had moments like that in our lives and thought: why not see if we can figure out a way to solve this? Electric Courage was born,” explained Duncan Bays, a co-founder of Electric Courage.
Bays met his co-founders Holly Smith, JP Leroux, and Shahed Al-Haque at last year’s Next 36competition.
