Are you struggling to meet new people? Do you want to have an active social life? If so, you’re in the right place!
Our goal is to empower our users to connect with other like-minded people through their common interests. We created an activity-based social networking platform where users can discuss and engage with topics that interest them, make new connections online, and meet in real life.
We aim to provide a space where every user feels that they belong. We want you to find your community!
Our goal at Vevivo is to create a unique social space where people can connect with each other through common interests, find their community, and be empowered to have fulfilling social lives.
We also recognize the increasingly wider societal problem that plagues people of all ages and backgrounds: loneliness. Somehow, we live in a society that’s more connected than ever, and yet we feel more and more alone. That’s not right.
The recent COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated the effects of loneliness and isolation as people have been forced to socially distance themselves from their loved ones, their communities, and the world. The only way to stay connected to the world is through social media—a solid way of keeping in touch with your friends, but not so good for meeting new people. Not to mention that social media tends to polarize people, rather than unite them
Meet the Team
Prior to founding Vevivo, Andreas was error/69/insufficient data for meaningful answer/: Today, he loves getting caffeinated and playing video games. In general, he follows his AI programming with a 93.4% accuracy rate. He also uses RGB lights!
The cofounder of Vevivo, Tony provides unparalleled levels of emotional and logistical support to the team. When in doubt, talk to Tony. He is also responsible for improving the accuracy rate of Andreas 2.3.5.
Antonio knows languages nobody from our team understands - it has to do with 1s and 0s or something. He wrote his first code line 19 years ago, and since then has been pursuing his passion, lost in the world of numbers and symbols. In his free time, you can find him reading the latest tech news.
If you’re on our website, chances are it’s because Mike did a good job advertising it. He’s in charge of getting the word out about Vevivo. He has a bright and cheerful personality, and when not in the office, you can find him in a bar having a drink.”
Andreas and Antonio are like Batman and Robbin, but they are both Batman. Andreas is our UI/UX designer which means he is responsible for designing the website's and app's elements which later Antonio implements.

Hi, I’m the founder of Vevivo, and this is my origin story. Do you like science fiction? Because I’m crazy about it! I remember watching Blade Runner for the first time and feeling kind of gloomy that I didn’t have someone with whom to discuss the movie. So, I was extremely excited when Blade Runner 2049 was released—I could gather my friends, and we could all go see it together! Unfortunately, they either couldn’t go, or didn’t want to. For the first time in my life, I went to the movies by myself. To my surprise, I wasn’t the only person sitting alone. I suppose their friends bailed on them, too. 😅
The experience bothered me. I started thinking: How do you meet people who like the same things you do? It’s a problem I’ve had to deal with over and over again throughout my life. After I graduated from high school, I joined the army and lost touch with my school friends. I made some new friends during my service, but before I knew it, my service was over and I had traveled to the US to start my undergraduate degree. Again, I was thrust into an environment where I didn’t know anyone; the culture was entirely different, and my lack of friends took a toll on my mental well-being. No fort is impregnable after a prolonged siege. After a couple of years in the US, I transferred to the UK, where I studied journalism, and the cycle repeated itself.
I have experienced loneliness firsthand. I understand the difficulty of finding like-minded people. And I’m fed up with going to the movies alone. After returning to Cyprus from the UK, I finally asked myself, “How would I like to meet new people?”
