About Crue

Joblessness and mass unrest from AGI are inevitable. The only way to cross this chasm and usher in the bountiful era AGI will provide is to create an AGI that people can trust. Trust is built through verbal conversation. Every person is attracted to different types of personalities and conversations. To create an AGI and personalitoes people trust and appreciate, we need the conversation data. We're creating a live voice and video social network to capture this data.

This social network uses AI and gamification to help people build meaningful relationships. We take in people's social media data and use it to match people and then facilitate those conversations. People get entries into exciting Mr. Beast style giveaways for having longer conversations and talking about suggested mutually interesting topics. We are the most fun place on the planet to build and strengthen relationships. Lastly, we have an AI that gives users feedback, ans lets them practice these conversations to become the best version of themselves.

Character.ai has proven there's a 20M MAU market for chatting with AI, they just lack the data to make a truly compelling one.

Problem statement

The loneliness epidemic affects 80% of gen z and gen alpha, 85% of which are gamers. Gaming is a low stakes way to meet people; however it is still tough to start a conversation beyond the game.
Were initially targeting the 60% of the first world, lonely genz gamers who use gaming as a way to make social connections (175M people).

Traction information

We have 1MAUs for our community engagement tool. People earn entries into giveaways for having conversations. We're developing the audio AI and matchmaking system for these users and need $3M to build the infrastructure and computational costs.
