Foursquare Labs Inc., commonly known as Foursquare, is an American technology company. The company's location platform is the foundation of several business and consumer products, including the Foursquare City Guide and Foursquare Swarm apps.
Dennis Crowley and Naveen Selvadurai founded the company in late 2008 and launched it in 2009. The company rose to prominence with the launch of its namesake local search-and-discovery mobile app, now known as Foursquare City Guide, which popularized the concept of real-time location-sharing and checking-in. Alongside the changes to the consumer apps, the company began creating products that leverage the location data collected via billions of check-ins. From 2014 to 2016 the company rolled out a series of enterprise offerings, including Pinpoint by Foursquare and Foursquare Attribution.
In May 2019 Foursquare bought Placed from Snap Inc. The terms of the deal were not disclosed. In April 2020 Foursquare announced a merger with Factual Inc. in an all-stock deal. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
