Exchanges of pictures, videos, and online chats can be conducted between interested singles. So you have to choose whether to conduct this business offline, online or a combination of the two. Before you actually go ahead with inviting singles to sign up for your speed dating service, you must check with the local authorities for any approvals or licenses that are required to run the business.
This is important even if you are going to run the business exclusively online.
