Niluk is a startup company that has built an app to address the issue of loneliness and social isolation with the motto “It’s not what you have in life, but who“. The app is engineered to keep you in this alternate universe as short as possible, in contrast to other networks which are designed to keep us addicted and on our phones. This unique platform key features include no algorithms but gives you the option to pre-filter connections based on your own common interests and proximity. Niluk made a lightweight UX to connect users to new members of their local community whether they are at home or in a new country. So everyone can reclaim their right to experience a feeling of belonging no matter where they are in the world.
Niluk founder Elena Köstler was in the middle of a project when her lead developer left the company. She turned to Tunga to take over the project and to bring it to a good end within scope and deadline.
