Company description

Jack and Ferdi was created by 2 expat entrepreneurs with busy travel schedule. Both fascinated by travel they were experimenting the same frustration of missing out and were looking for a tool to capture the essence of a city when on a business trip. Traditional search methods are riddled with the same issues: the content is often times sponsored, the ratings are frequently unfairly manipulated, and the recommendations are not tailored to who the user is and his/her constraints. With no time to scroll through endless results pages and filter by opening hour, the idea of an app that would offer unbiased, suited to the travelers' profile, constraints and location, vetted by local and most importantly truly authentic and quintessential, emerged. Jack and Ferdi provides business travelers the opportunity to seize the full potential of their trips by offering geolocalized, AI-generated and curator-vetted suggestions in the form of 5 authentic things to see or do, 5 typical dishes to taste, 5 genuine souvenirs to bring back home as well as 5 local charities which they can support back home.
