FreeGuides, founded by 25-year-old entrepreneur Daniel Wasilewsky, announced it will be working with Tech Central in an effort to encourage Sydneysiders and Tech Central workers and locals to rediscover and support SMBs in the emerging home of tech and innovation.
What are the terms of the agreement?
The FreeGuides app has 1500+ self-guided walking experiences. Its deal with Tech Central, a thriving Innovation District, will see the app host curated self-guided walking tours through the precinct. ‘Places to Eat Around Tech Central’ is the first experience to go live, giving anyone the chance to enjoy a free self-guided eating and drinking tour through Tech Central.
The foodie experience will take users on an adventure through Surry Hills, Haymarket, Chippendale, Ultimo and Redfern. Visiting destinations like hidden bars in chinatown, Atomic Bar, Dopa Donburi and 20+ other locations that will tantilise the taste buds, all while helping to boost the economy. The self-guided experience is interactive with each stop on the app embedded with photographs, videos and local insights that can be followed by an explorer.
This innovative experience is the first of many for Tech Central and FreeGuides and an exciting one for Wasilewsky who is an avid player in Australia’s tech startup space.
What were the executive’s thoughts on the partnership?
“We’re extremely proud to announce our partnership with Tech Central. Our goal is to produce multiple self-guided experiences that both locals and visitors can enjoy highlighting the best things to do, see and enjoy whilst working or visiting the area,” said Wasilewsky.
“This first experience is a great way to encourage foot traffic back to some amazing local eateries. We’re excited to support Tech Central’s mission to entice and encourage the best and the brightest to work and play in the precinct and to see the impact this will have not only on the tech community but the larger geographic ecosystem,” said Wasilewsky.
The ‘Places to Eat Around Tech Central’ experience is available now via the FreeGuides app. With more experiences dropping later this year – stay tuned.
