CurEat Founder Steve Mangano will walk attendees through the full spectrum of app development, from idea to product development to the live launch in real time. The idea for CurEat is that users will be inspired by CurEaters—without the photos and opinionated reviews common to other platforms—to patronize casual or mom-and-pop operations as well as upscale hotspots, and in turn influence others with their own endorsements. Mangano likens CurEat's lists to social media shout-outs from friends looking for great food in an unfamiliar location or those who crave a certain type of cuisine or atmosphere. "I was in New York and saw that Rochelle Johnson from Ponysaurus and Dashi listed a ramen place [on CurEat]. I used the map feature and found it was just six blocks from where I was," he says. "I went there and it was amazing."
