Our Story


Years ago, Nicole set out to change the way people can learn about each other online. She knew the value of a referral and then it struck her – why is there nothing that provides recommendations and commentary on aspects that truly matter to us?

Teaming up with her best friend Julia, the two innovative women set out to change the way people can learn about each other online. The Peeple app allows you to better choose who you hire, do business with, date, become your neighbours, roommates, landlords/tenants, and watch, teach, and care for your children. There are endless reasons as to why we would want this reference check for the people around us.

Looking at everyone in the three ways you could possibly know someone – personally, professionally and romantically – you can provide a recommendation on everyone you come in contact with, while allowing yourself to be recommended.

Once armed with these recommendations you can turn them into your new form of currency to get better job opportunities, better dates, growing relationships, and networking opportunities. The online social media space was lacking a safe place to manage your online reputation.

We are confident that with Peeple you deserve to have it all!
