Corsten says, “Thanks to my work, I’ve had the opportunity to visit many places in the world, but wherever I go, people are happiest when they come together – in real life. I think it’s great that Amigos now provides a platform that makes it easy to meet others and make new friends.”

Amigos is a social network that was created in 2021 by Johanan Fraanje that links users through in-person interactions. With 800,000 users in seven countries and more than €3 million in funding, the app makes getting together for group activities easier. By selecting a "mood" as an interest, users can immediately connect with people who share their interests in dining, socialising, or sports.

By offering users connections, social stimulation, and surprises, the platform hopes to break up the monotony of daily life and inspire users to venture beyond their comfort zones and realise their full potential.
