UX / Product designer

Who we are

Covve is on a mission to empower every person to build strong relationships. As human beings, we need connections to feel that we're part of something worthwhile. Our network provides us with support when times are rough, it is also one of our superpowers, unlocking opportunities otherwise inaccessible.

However, most people struggle to keep their relationships fresh. In our busy lives, we'll forget to catch up, and when we do, we ll forget the names of their kids, or their hobbies and interests. And as time passes, it feels harder to reach out and rewarm these relationships, let alone to ask for some help.

We are building Covve to change this pattern. Everyone can become a superhuman with the enhanced qualities and abilities their network can give them!

And it's already happening! The Covve app is the #1 personal CRM app in the US. Covve Scan, a 4.9⭐ app, is the fastest and most accurate business card scanner in the world. Covve Card is a physical contactless card that aims to take the business card game to the next level. Covve Education promotes thoughtfulness, trust and relationship best practices to thousands.

Having raised over €5M to date, we are backed by San Francisco investors, Metavallon.vc, the National Bank of Greece and private investors.

And we are just getting started... Are you coming?
