Acknowledging the reality that adults have few socially-approved means of making new friends, Floh is an innovative new social network that hopes to connect Bohemian adults with like-minded professionals.

Let's face it: Without school or a permanent workplace, it's tough to make new acquaintances for young professionals. When it comes time to unwind, share a drink and some ideas, most single urbanites have no means of meeting people. This is where Floh (Find Life Over Here) steps in. This invite-only social network is by no means a dating website, explains founder Siddharth Mangharam. Prospective invitees are vetted by members and subsequently invited to high-end events that span the gamut from cheese-tasting, gallery premiers and cocktail events. With just six months since its inception, Floh has already cultivated a thriving community of intelligent socialites numbering in the thousands. To all the lonely professionals, Mangharam's website is currently exclusive to India, so unless you're willing to make the trip to Bangalore, you'll have to stick to your local watering hole.
