Manyguide is the free app that uses artificial intelligence to assign questions to 600 real local experts, who provide help, right when you need it. The company was founded in 2014 by two old friends, Maarten van den Biggelaar from Amsterdam and Gunter Boutsen from Brussels, who wanted to help anyone exchange the kind of location-based city advice they’d been giving each other for years. Manyguide launched in the App Store in December 2015 and is now available for Brussels and Amsterdam.
