More information on the app…

An exciting new app aimed at bringing like-minded individuals together, who ‘live for the moment’ and want to experience life to the full, is being launched in London on 7 December 2016.

With a tap of the app, HeyGreenGO users can find new friends and get out and about, to enjoy the things they love doing most - or to experience new things they’ve been keen to try. And with new friends everywhere, there’s now no reason to postpone trying out that new experience, missing that gig / film / event or exhibition, finding a training buddy for the next marathon or meeting up with a business guru who is available for some coaching - and that’s just the tip of the iceberg…

HeyGreenGO is all about meeting up in person and living in the now – and being able to do things on impulse with others in the vicinity, who share interests, hobbies, pastimes or ambitions and, most importantly, are on your radar and searchable, thanks to HeyGreenGO.

HeyGreenGO’s vision is to get people talking and meeting up again – something modern life seems to overlook.

MEDIA RELEASE - UNDER EMBARGO UNTIL MIDDAY ON 7/12/16

Hey, Londoners. It’s time to get personal…

An exciting new app aimed at bringing like-minded individuals together, who ‘live for the moment’ and want to experience life to the full, is being launched in London on 7 December 2016.

With a tap of the app, HeyGreenGO users can find new friends and get out and about, to enjoy the things they love doing most - or to experience new things they’ve been keen to try. And with new friends everywhere, there’s now no reason to postpone trying out that new experience, missing that gig / film / event or exhibition, finding a training buddy for the next marathon or meeting up with a business guru who is available for some coaching - and that’s just the tip of the iceberg…

HeyGreenGO is all about meeting up in person and living in the now – and being able to do things on impulse with others in the vicinity, who share interests, hobbies, pastimes or ambitions and, most importantly, are on your radar and searchable, thanks to HeyGreenGO.

HeyGreenGO’s vision is to get people talking and meeting up again – something modern life seems to overlook.

Craig Walsh, Co-Founder of HeyGreenGO, comments: “HeyGreenGO is the next big thing. We believe there is too much stigma with dating apps, as people are all too quickly dismissed with one swipe or one click. People are engrossed with their mobile phones and are becoming out of touch with reality. However, we’re helping to solve this.

“Whether it’s a movie, gig, exhibition, eating out, skateboarding, rock climbing, skydiving - or whatever, sometimes the only thing that is stopping you doing what you love the most – or would love to love the most - is having somebody who shares your interests to call on. At HeyGreenGO we say life is for living so get out there and experience the world with someone, because why not!

In a report recently released by Deloitte, social media networks represent the most downloaded apps by smartphone users – with 55% (only bettered by weather apps!).

According to the same report, 59% of smartphone users access social media channels at least once a day from their device, and daily instant messaging has doubled over the past two years.

HeyGreenGO is therefore looking to muscle-in on the social media market with an app that appeals to those smartphone users who want to discover and connect whilst in ‘digital life’ mode, with the purpose of meeting up in ‘real life’.

StJohn Hughes, Co-Founder of HeyGreenGO, adds: “There are a million apps out there, all promising to make your life better in some way or another. However, they don’t provide experiences that are truly fulfilling, exciting or dynamic, which can only be achieved when meeting people in person.

“We’ve therefore developed the app HeyGreenGO to directly address this issue by making it quick and easy to find and meet up with people in person who share your interests and ambitions. Here at HeyGreenGO, we believe in the virtues of the digital world, but also recognise it can limit our experience of the wider world within which we originate; depend upon; benefit from; and arguably derive greater meaning.

“This applies to social engagement, be it with family, friends, colleagues; people we know, and people we don't know, but would like to; and with individuals or crowds. Increasingly our digital connectedness is reducing our scope to actually meet with other people and benefit from real interaction with them, be it enjoying a coffee together; participating in a group activity; engaging in business; and so forth. We’ve therefore produced the app HeyGreenGO to open up the door to greater opportunities and fulfilment for its users.”

James Murdoch, Co-Founder of HeyGreenGO, explains further: “No screen, device nor algorithm can substitute those complex empathies and intuitions which naturally occur from communicating with others in real life.

“Whilst today’s built environment, work and travel arrangements may seem to conspire against this, we at HeyGreenGO employ the best of technology to facilitate the most ancient of human characteristics and human qualities - our shared time and place. We, literally, share the same horizon; we can see eye to eye or not; we can choose to keep or part company. HeyGreenGO will be an easily used tool, controlled by you, and will complement your own lived circumstances.

“I remember being on a train journey into the city and watching the majority of the people around me glued to their phones, not smiling or even acknowledging those around them – and yet they all probably share many interests. The true power of social validation exists off the screen and off the device, I think we all need to connect more with other human beings in person. This can't be done by adding more friends or connections on Facebook or LinkedIn or by taking selfies and posting them to Instagram.

“People don’t seem to talk anymore, like they used to. They really could be ‘friends you haven’t met yet.’ Yet there are thousands of like-minded individuals who live, work and visit areas within easy reach of each other, who can hook up and enjoy similar interests. That’s where HeyGreenGO comes in.

“I hope HeyGreenGO helps us as humans to look forward and make human connections and remember our neighbours, more. Be it a passing person nearby, or a traveller on the journey of his or her life time, we want HeyGreenGO to enable this, easily.

“HeyGreenGO will bring people together again and enrich social lives. It’s safe, simple to use and different. We’ve been developing the idea since 2013 and we’re really excited to finally launch our app to the public,” James concludes.
