CEO/Directeur, happn - Founder, Dailymotion, Dailymotion, happn

Didier Rappaport is the CEO and co-founder of happn, the new buzz app that is turning the dating industry upside down.

Before creating happn alongside his partners, Fabien and Antony Cohen, Didier was at the forefront of the Internet scene after developing B2B online services in the 2000s. Didier was co-founder and Chief Operations Officer of the second largest video-sharing website in the world, Dailymotion.

happn is the first dating app starting from a real-life experience. Using hyper-location, happn gives you the power to find the people you’ve crossed paths with but haven’t had the chance to meet – yet!

The homepage is a timeline of all the people you’ve encountered: every time you cross paths with another happn member, their profile appears on your app in real-time, giving you the chance to discover and to find that person that has caught your eye, and to avoid all missed connections.
