Previously, he led the creation and launch of the Starbucks app. After 19 years of launching mobile products, 20+ patents, and Master of Applied Mathematics & Computer Science (Paris Dauphine) there's nothing else he looks foward to more than music, champagne, and kitesurfing.

Andy Mai
Co-founder & CXO
Andy has over 13 years of experience at creative agencies and startups. In 2011, he was crowned Reddit Submitter of the Year and was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Achievement in Interactive Media. If you've ever used an app that tells you what song is playing, you have him to thank. He met Raja and Ben serendipidously at Coachella in 2013 where they bonded over their love for music and good conversation. When not using a lint roller to remove the fur from his 4 cats, he is usually outdoors or taking pictures.

Our Philosophy

Our vision for Dolo came from feeling like we live in a bubble of our social networks. Dolo helps people amplify what we all do naturally by providing a platform for simple serendipitous conversation with others nearby. Debate the latest protest, find that secret popup, make a new friend, borrow a corkscrew. Make yourself heard or—just eavesdrop.

Anyone can create a post about nearly any topic imaginable. Every post is independently moderated by the person who started it, the community, and our team of moderators. To learn more, check out our Community Guidelines.
