Work With Me

From Architect To Founder

I’m an architect turned entrepreneur, Founder and CEO of Cheekd, a mobile dating app that makes missed connections obsolete. After working in architecture, furniture and design for 15 years, I came up with an idea that lead me into the NYC World of Tech and am now solving missed connections. I completely threw away my design career and I’m no longer building structures, I’m now building relationships.

The Word On The Street

"Lori has been through it all since launching Cheekd – a mobile dating app that makes the whole experience way more personal (ahem, no more swiping left and right) in 2010 including battling it out with the sharks on ABC’s Shark Tank. She is truly an inspiration for everyone, especially starting out a fresh new year.”

"Lori herself is an inspiring, warm, down to earth, fierce, driven, and very independent women. She also has a great sense of style (see below), as well as a great sense of humor (which you need, as an entrepreneur). What inspires us the most about Lori is her gusto, drive, and ambition. Lori Cheek is one determined woman! She embodies and exudes enough confidence to simultaneously dominate and light up a room. Her persistence, devotion, dedication and passion for her start-up is refreshing and contagious.”
