Moving to a new city or job can be challenging. That is why Janete Perez created Present, the social media app that connects women in cities across the country with similar interests.

Present initially launched in San Francisco and recently expanded to eight more cities including NYC, LA, DC, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Birmingham and St. Louis.

Present enables women to connect and meet up over shared interests including activities ranging from working out, exploring new restaurants, and overall meeting new friends. Perez is excited from the positive feedback users have expressed.

Perez is excited to expand to new communities and hopes to continue connecting women around the country. The key is driving connections and communications offline, and Perez is encouraged by the success of such interaction thusfar.
