Montreal startup Soul.City launches its city discovery app in New York and San Francisco!



MONTREAL, Oct. 3, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - Montreal startup Soul.City Group Inc. announces the expansion of its city discovery application into two major US cities, with five more worldwide destinations planned by end of 2017. New York City and San Francisco may now be discovered through one's feelings, where walking itineraries of 2, 4, or 6 hours may be selected from a suggested list of moods.

Realizing that the notion of feeling is at the base of most memorable experiences, the startup's three co-founders polished their idea to create an innovative and free local discovery app. Since its launch on the Apple App store and Google Play in 2016, the application has attracted tens of thousands of users on both sides of the Atlantic.

"We are disrupting city discovery by offering a unique, live, and enhanced experience. The response from our users and corporate partners has been simply incredible. Essentially, we have created an inventory of feelings for people to enjoy", says CEO Annick Charbonneau.

The strategic move into the US market comes at a time of rapid growth for the young company.  

"We are in talks with partners to help us take Soul.City global, as fast as possible. We aim to be in 100 cities by 2020", a challenge CEO Annick Charbonneau and her co-founders are keen to take on. The co-founders' main objective: to constantly improve and personalize the user experience, wherever she or he may be in the world.

Soul.City is available for free download on the Apple App Store and Google Play.

About Soul.City: A Franco-Canadian collaboration, the startup's three co-founders evolve on two continents. Annick Charbonneau, CEO based in Montreal, is a world-travelled entrepreneur.  Stéphane Hamilton, also in Montreal, is the technical force of the trio. He has accompanied several well-established brands in the digital world. Michael Bechler is a designer specialized in the user experience and consultant in lean startups. He brings his European flair to the project with a vast experience in digital tourism.
