'Neqtr' is a socially conscious dating app that is geared towards those who want to make a different in their community. For many people, a first date typically involves a cup of coffee or a nice dinner. This alternative dating app encourages users to bond over activities that benefit the larger community.

The app was co-founded by Sonya Davis who recognized that a desire to help others is a highly attractive quality for many people. Davis wanted to create an app that encouraged users to improve their community and foster a meaningful connection at the same time. As Davis explains, "When you're giving're forming deeper connections with people around you." Neqtr helps users foster these kinds of connections by encouraging them to set up dates that are good for themselves and the community around them. To facilitate these kinds of activities, Neqtr collaborates with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity and the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.

The socially conscious dating app ultimately provides a platform for users to meet people based on the causes they are passionate about.
