“If Foursquare and Tinder had a baby, and that baby was really into gaming, that's Leaping Tiger” Amy Potter, founder, Leaping Tiger, explains. “We have seen many social platforms move away from lengthy posts and extensive profiles, but social platforms for gamers have lagged behind. We think we are providing a product that is the evolution of the online social experience for gamers. We offer a streamlined set of tools to help the community instantly connect.

Leaping Tiger is founded by a small group of gamers in Wellington. If you want to support them, go find the Leaping Tiger app now on both iOS and Android.
