At Foursquare we believe the world is full of amazing experiences. We make two apps to help guide you to them: Foursquare and Swarm.
Everyone’s tastes are different so why should we get the same search results? Foursquare learns what you like and leads you to places you’ll love. Find great recommendations based on your tastes, your ratings for similar places, and the friends and experts you trust most. We’ve reinvented local search, to help you find the perfect place, wherever you are.
In 2009, Foursquare launched the check-in and real-time location sharing with friends. Five years later, we decided to give the check-in its own app. Swarm is the fastest and easiest way to keep up and meet up with friends.
In 2015, Foursquare launched Pinpoint by Foursquare. Pinpoint is our full-service advertising solution powered by the world’s most accurate location intelligence available. Marketers can now look beyond website visits to accurately target millions of consumers based on the places they go in the physical world.
We’re proud to be funded by Union Square Ventures, O’Reilly AlphaTech Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz, Spark Capital, DFJ Growth, SMALLCAP World Fund, Silver Lake Waterman, Microsoft, and and a handful of angel investors.
