About Feastfox Inc.
Feastfox is a tech startup whose product will allow people to find new restaurants that perfectly suit the moment and the mood -- all in less than three minutes. That’s the fastest restaurant-discovery experience, ever. We redesigned the entire process from the ground up: Feastfox’s engine analyzes millions of restaurant attributes and matches them to personal preferences stored in the user’s profile. It then filters these matches through the type of dining experience that the user seeks -- date night, business lunch, family brunch -- and provides recommendations on where to go. Feastfox’s diners get what they want - every time.
Our venture was founded at Stanford University by entrepreneurs with strong ties for the restaurant industry. Two of Feastfox’s founders worked on the strategy team at e-commerce giant Groupon, Inc. Our advisory board members include world-class academics, well-known entrepreneurs and industry experts including a former OpenTable executive. The startup closed an oversubscribed seed round in 2019.
