The beauty of Project 143 is that it was born from a very real and relatable place. Aneeka created Project 143 after coming out of an almost five-year relationship and discovering the struggles of dating in the digital era. She became frustrated with using dating websites and apps and found herself looking for an alternative. It soon became apparent to her that there was nothing out there that quite fit the bill. Stemming from the desire to meet like-minded professionals like herself, Aneeka decided to set up Project 143 with her motto being ‘no algorithms, no games’.


Aneeka didn’t want Project 143 to be another Asian marriage bureau; it was going to be the opposite. She wanted to completely modernise the traditional, Asian family-centred matchmaking to appeal to today’s modern British Asian, who have taken on western values. She wanted to take away the ‘marriage’ pressure with family involvement and instead provide Asians with another avenue where they can have the freedom of choice and be able to date on their own terms and time, using this old concept of matchmaking. This is why Project 143 stands out in the dating industry since it is the was the first of its kind to navigating a new path for those who come from a very embedded culture.


They are different to the agencies before them who continue to match on caste, have an emphasis on family involvement or do not cater to the Asian professional niche. The service isn’t just about providing great matches, it’s about setting up their members up for success and that starts with the support and guidance they provide along the way. If you want experience, skill and access to highly curated pool of members then Project 143 is the asian matchmaking agency for you. There really is no other company out there than can rival it in these areas.
