Startup NameTastd
What problem are you solving?Calling a friend to get a recommendation – apart from being annoying – does not allow us to access all the information out there (your friend from LA might have great suggestions for NYC or London, but how could you know that?).
Everyone has favorite restaurants, but each one of us saves them in a different way (business cards, Notes, Google Maps, excel, etc.) making it hard to share them quickly.
Tastd wants to become everyone’s repository of favorite restaurants and the only restaurants-discovery platform that works everywhere in the world.
What is your solution?Tastd is a free app that allows you to share your favorite restaurants with your friends and follow your friends to easily discover great restaurants all around the world. But that\’s not all: the more followers you have who trust your recommendations, the higher the chances to become an influential food Guru in your city.
