The concept -

Find trendy & new open spots in all cities.

Hype! was created after months of research aimed at answering a simple question: how to go beyond a basic app listing coffee-shops and restaurants ? Based on search algorithms, Hype! can find trendy places in every city around the world, from New York to Tokyo.


"In 2015, a young Parisian decided to launch an app to find worldwide trendy places."

I was traveling in San Francisco when I first thought of devising a service that would later be named Hype! When I travel I like looking for authentic and original places but found it very time consuming to compare multiple sources in order to find the right place(s) at a precise moment. Thatโ€™s how I got the idea of creating a trend algorithm based on all these sources.

The product -

Reducing the friction

I wanted to create a service that would be very simple to use and proactive. The apps of this kind usually have many filters and selection criteria whereas Hype! only selects the places youโ€™re interested in and the price range, thatโ€™s all.
