Tran, a Seattle native who re-located to the Bay Area after stints with Student RND and Tune, said that he primarily made Color Dating after females consistently told him that “I don’t date Asian guys,” or, “I’m just not attracted to Asian guys.” Tran felt that this was unfair and that the trend carried over into dating apps like Tinder.
Vu Tran was frustrated with traditional dating apps.
As an Asian male, he felt that the current offerings “get hijacked by the majority.” So, Tran and a few friends spent a weekend building an app that was focused on minorities and those who like minorities.
After being selected for Y Combinator’s 2014 class and working on creating an artificial intelligence-fueled chatbot, Vu Tran decided three months ago to scrap that project and create Color Dating, an app for interracial dating.
It’s been said that when entrepreneurs create something, they are often their own target audience, and for Tran it was a personal pivot.
