Its guiding principle – what you know shouldn’t be limited by who you know – led to the design of a social news platform, one fundamentally shaped by your interests. Seen currently has three full-time staff members working on the platform, Andrei Sabau, Chansa Kalunga and Alex Li, and several people working part-time, dedicated to seeing this platform become a reality.

Think OKCupid’s matching power combined with Spotify’s ‘discover weekly’ recommendations, designed for live theatre, dance and opera events.
Finding great live entertainment has never been more daunting. The discovery barrier is so high that many audiences will choose alternatives like Netflix or dining out, to the time-intensive work of manually sorting through reviews, ratings and event listing sites. Recommendation engines have been used to solve discovery challenges in many domains, but few have been developed to handle the complexities of “live” events. StagePage was started out of a desire to solve this ambitious challenge. Working in close collaboration with major arts organizations, including Ontario’s largest performing arts festival, the Toronto Fringe, the company has developed a new technology that harnesses the power of machine learning and data intelligence to power personalized recommendations.
