There are plenty of apps that do a great job of pointing people toward regional highlights on a macro scale — things like restaurants, bars, or stores — but the Dolo app is looking to unlock the hyper-local peccadillos that give cities their unique characters. The social app is aiming to create a community of local experts who share the most minute, granular details about the places they love: from the best view in the park to the alley that has the best graffiti for Instagram.
For CEO Raja Haddad, the benefit of Dolo is that it brings the socialization of a party or a bar to broader areas. When "at a cocktail party or a bar, people feel more naturally 'allowed' to just mingle... In larger spaces (a park, a neighborhood, a city), there are no vehicles today that allow such frictionless, comfortable, fun socializing" TechCrunch quotes Haddad as pointing out. Dolo wants to be the app that bridges that gap.
