RecSpot empowers people to seamlessly share what they love with their trusted network. Founded by serial entrepreneurs who have led or built for leading brands like Vogue, Amazon, SoulCycle, Equinox and Hermes, RecSpot will make sharing recommendations with your private network easy and fun.

Current social networks and recommendation platforms face eroding trust as they continue to be overwhelmed by trolls, bots, and unverified identities that flood them with fake reviews and loaded ratings. RecSpot is different. It is a platform that facilitates connecting people you know and trust, where you get value sharing with few or many. It will replace the endless number of channels users go between for recommendations, to uniquely solve the frequent dilemma of where to eat/what to watch. By providing a visualization of your cultural universe, evolving as your tastes do, RecSpot will connect you in new ways.

With integrations in the media and entertainment industry and RecSpot’s relationships with content and celebrity influencers we will create a vibrant community that users will return to for new and exciting recommendations they won’t find anywhere else.
