There are a lot of companies in the market that are planning your multi-day trips covering multiple cities. But there are not many that suggest memorable experiences in the city you live in. Frequency of intra-city hangouts is far more than trips and still there experience gets unnoticed. They enhance the experience of weekday outings, weekend parties or anything related to the regular hangouts. In couple of years, they want to be the go to app for the intra-city outing in 10 cities. Right now, they are focusing on Search and Discovery part of activities/places in the city and creating a perfect itinerary for the day. After that it would also solve other pain points in outing such as collaboration (finalize and discuss with friends about plan), co-ordination (where are my friends right now?) and sharing (share pics/stories and split expenses).
