Founder and CEO of Pinya, Joana Gutierrez ventured into the tech world in 2017 after being recruited by a VC to build an Ai focused software team. While advances in technology have provided incredible tools that allow us to digitally connect with other people, Gutierrez recognized the resulting decrease in real life interactions. Through the Pinya ecosystem, Gutierrez’s goal is to overcome that consequence.
Disrupting a 799 billion dollar hospitality industry with an Ai assisted application that provides optimal accommodating meeting experience while creating revolutionary value for business owners. Pinya is an Ai assisted mobile app that recommends, searches, reserves, orders, and pays for accommodating experiences at a myriad of places to meet. We aim to provide a VIP like experience for users while creating revolutionary value for businesses. The AI component is in the form of a recommendation engine, allowing the app to recommend places for you to meet based on your previous reservation preferences, in addition to the preferences of the person that you’re meeting with. We’re looking forward to unique features in our upcoming beta version such as customized recommendations, requested specific seating, as well as reservations at places that were not previously available for reservation such as coffee shops, food halls, hotel lounges, and VIP entry at nightclubs.
The Pinya app is also revolutionary because with a US patent application, we have created an incentive model with which a business owner can place a minimum spending option for reservation on Pinya so that they will know guaranteed revenue on every Pinya reservation. For example, a coffee shop can now place a table for reservation for a minimum purchase of a cup of coffee and pastry per person, per hour. The same model would apply to a high-end restaurant or VIP entry at a posh nightclub. Guaranteed revenue for business owners creates incentive for them to provide the most accommodating experience possible to Pinya customers. As previously mentioned, The Pinya ecosystem consists of an AI assisted accommodation mobile application, partnered with TIPSc, a gratitude and recommendations based virtual currency, andThe Real Meet, a digital series of interviews with influencers conducted over a meal.
TIPSc is a gratitude and recommendation based virtual currency. It allows users to acknowledge individuals who go above and beyond to assist, accommodate, or provide you with a spectacular product or service. People can earn TIPSc by excelling in what they do. In addition, the value of TIPSc increases every time a user performs a transaction--users will be rewarded every time they show gratitude. Eventually, TIPSc will provide verified public recommendations on which individuals or institutions provide the best product and/or service. We will be thanking our guests by exchanging TIPSc on The Real Meet series, as gratitude for coming on the show and sharing with us.
Gutierrez is also the Executive Producer of The Real Meet series. The show, which is currently in the pre-production stage, is a digital series that brings together influencers, celebrities, rising stars, and thought leaders to foster authentic connections, and possibly mark the beginnings of a rewarding venture. The show makes introductions and interviews guests over a meal while filming at various venues throughout New York City. We are thrilled at the opportunity to create a series that celebrates the ambition and accomplishments of today’s most influential individuals. Being able to not only bring such parties together to discuss their ventures, charitable causes, and passions, but to share them over a wholesome meal is the epitome of what I believe is the recipe for meaningful, long-lasting connection. We have positioned The Real Meet series as the first aspect of the ecosystem to launch first. Stay tuned for The Real Meet.
While advances in technology have provided incredible tools that allow us to digitally connect with other people, Gutierrez recognized the resulting decrease in real life interactions.
