    Victoria Based Women Only Social Networking Platform to Meet New Friends, Activity Partners, Business Connections Begins Beta Testing.

    For Immediate Release

    Victoria, BC, August 7, 2018 – Locelle™, a women-only location based social networking platform to find and meet platonic connections has begun beta testing with select users. With hundreds of registered users in Victoria and Vancouver, it’s an exciting time for women to connect and meet like-minded women in a safe and easy way.

    Being new to the city, newly single or separated, going through a career change, diving into entrepreneurship, traveling, parenthood – all unique life transitions bring about a need for like-minded connections, especially post grad for many women. Locelle™, an interest based secure platform helps to find like-minded connections nearby. The name Locelle is a combination of “local” and “elle" meaning she.

    “Having gone through isolation through different stages of life myself, I know how hard it can be without a like-minded tribe. It's essential to bring women together now - loneliness and isolation affect millions of women in countries across the world and social capital is vital for mental health and overall well-being," expressed Humaira Ahmed, Founder and CEO of Locelle Digital Inc.

    Women rely heavily on their social networks to share, support and thrive. “It’s increasingly becoming challenging to easily meet like-minded women in person due to many factors – schedules, evolving interests, life transitions and location; and Locelle exists to help women get off-line and grow their tribe,” said Ahmed.

    The official launch is at the West Coast Womens Show Oct 12-14 where over 23,000 women are expected to attend the show. Beta testing is underway for both iOS and Android users – interested women can sign up for early access at locelle.com
