Tim Stokely, the creator of content subscription service OnlyFans, has made an undisclosed investment in fitness dating app FITFCK.
According to FITFCK, the founder of OnlyFans invested, valuing the company at more than £3 million.
Jamie Wykes-Hobday started FITFCK, which is pronounced “Fit-eff-see-kay,” when his fiancée broke up with him just weeks before he was scheduled to compete in a bodybuilding contest.
Through their mutual interest in fitness, users of the app are meant to meet at social or training events.
“I am delighted to have had the opportunity to invest in FITFCK,” said Stokely, who sold his majority stake in the predominantly adult content platform in 2018. “Having known Jamie for over three years now, his vision, drive and determination coupled with the brand concept is something that I fully believe in and I am looking forward to seeing it realise its global potential as a multi-level consumer brand.”
Jamie Wykes-Hobday said: “I am thrilled that Tim has decided to invest in FITFCK. “Finding an investor is one thing but finding one who has scaled his own startup into a multi-billion dollar global business is extremely rare and very valuable.
“I know Tim’s confidence in the business will significantly help us realize FITFCK‘s potential as a global consumer brand.”
The London-based organization FITFCK intends to introduce its app and subsequent event in November.
