What's better -- a search result or a recommendation tailored just to your tastes?

Last updated 7 years ago

My company is funding a great new startup called Bizzy that just launched the beta of their local recommendation engine. 

What the heck is a local recommendation engine and why should you care?  You should care because discovering businesses near you is easy via a simple search of Google or a local directory.  But discovering fantastic places that are perfect for you is really hard.

The answer is Bizzy.  Here’s the official description from their site:

 “Bizzy is a personalized local business recommendation engine that helps you find the best places to eat, shop, and play based on the spots you already know and love. You tell us your favorites, and we'll find you new ones. We created Bizzy under the belief that life is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. We have undertaken a mission to help you find the right recipe for your consumer happiness by creating a search mechanism that finds not just an answer, but the best answer for you.”

Please help us get it off the ground by going to and answering 20 questions about your favorite spots to eat, shop and play. Once Bizzy knows your favorite places, and the favorites of other people like you, it churns out recommendations for cool places you may not have discovered yet. The more information Bizzy collects, the smarter it gets and the better job it does giving great recommendations for local businesses in your area.

Thanks for your help!
