OliveWoo–The First Location-based Date Service

On Friday, I am going to visit the SF New Tech – the Big Endless Summer Social event in Los Altos Hills, located in the San Francisco.

About SF New Tech

SF New Tech is the largest and longest running monthly technology event in San Francisco. Since forming in March 2006 more than 5,000 people have signed up to attend monthly standing room only events.

More than 2000 companies have attended  over the years, and more than 200 of them have been to the SF New Tech stage to demo their latest and greatest.

OliveWoo – location based date service

One of the demos that will be held  at tomorrow’s event is for the latest within location based services.

It’s the first location based application for couples that analyzes your interests and mood to find the perfect date idea for you and your significant other.

Basically OliveWoo is a place where you can create, discover, and share exciting date ideas.

On the latest SXSW conference location based services were called out to be the next big thing, and with the most successful location based application ‘Foursquare’ just turning their 100 millions check in, there is a good chance of success for an application combining the location based feature and something that have been driving humans since Adam and Eva: dating.

For a lot of restaurants and other service industries there are interesting business opportunities in OliveWoo when the service gets a large enough critical mass. Being recommended as a great dating venue can mean business.

I have made myself a profile and will pay good attention at the presentation, and do a follow up giving some more specifics to this new service.

What do you think – can you use an location based date service to enhance your dating life?
