Introducing Jedo V2

As we blow out the candles for our 1-year anniversary, we look back at this rollercoaster that’s full of excitement, achievements, and hustle toward building the best local companion. Jedo’s team focused on understanding the market dynamics and uncovering the biggest gap that Jedo can fill in there.

1 year into this journey, we announce the release of a new, revamped version of Jedo. This update is the result of a tireless effort to enhance the user experience and deliver a product that makes trip planning personalized, hassle-free, and most importantly: Local.

  • Marie-Lynn and Thea on Marketing

We are united by a shared conviction that touring like a local shouldn’t be hard. It should happen on demand. By doing that, we break cultural barriers and bring people closer together through meaningful moments.

Our mission is to create a world where people from different backgrounds can come together and learn from each other, ultimately leading to a more connected and empathetic global community.

Going out like a local shouldn’t be hard. It should happen on demand.
