We  connect women looking for company – for the joy of a shared experience and to safely seize the day

The inspiration 
behind Wengage

Just about every woman has experienced it: being in a moment when you wish you had some company because there was something to see or do, and you didn’t want to go on your own. 

 

The idea for Wengage came when I was alone one evening in Whitehorse, Yukon. Knowing there were many European tourists in town, and having spent a year in Milan years earlier, I thought, “How great would it be to meet someone from Italy over dinner.”

I ended up at a sports restaurant watching a Blue Jays game on my own.  It was fine, but I wondered how many others, at the very same moment in time, were also looking for company. I thought of the many times in my life, on a business trip, while on vacation or at home, when I found myself missing out or sharing the joy of a great experience because I had no way to connect to a like-minded woman. 

When I started to share my idea for an app that would connect women in the very moment they are looking for company, I most often couldn’t finish a sentence. There was an immediate connection, when women would say, “I know exactly what you mean,” or “This is me. I want your app!” I could fill pages with all of the "alone" moments described by women of all ages and from all walks of life.  I discovered that like me, women want to embrace life experiences and share those moments with others.

 

I realized how strong the app could be by sharing authentic information, by women for women. When I saw the data and the number of women with the opportunity to  embrace life like never before, yet many times missing out only for lack of company, I couldn’t sleep. I envisioned a dynamic and energized network of women around the world, formed from moments in time when two or more women are looking for company.

 

Wengage is Women. Connecting.

With each other. With all life has to offer.
