Our Story

The Past

This story started when our Founder and CEO, Michael Diego, embarked on a yearlong work abroad deployment. The adventure took countless hours of planning yet he still found he was missing experiences he'd either not known about, or not had the bandwith to organize. Michael’s work-life balance was severely strained and he decided to build an assistant to delegate his personal planning tasks, so he could focus on living his life.

Michael would meet Ryan Brandt, Founder and CTO, at the Boston Build Hackathon in May 2019 and the two would join forces to bring Wise Assistant to life. Together, they endeavored to build an assistant that would proactively automate manual planning tasks so they could focus on enjoying the experience. Wise Assistant would make group planning, scheduling, and finding new experiences a breeze. The story resonated and the small team quickly grew into a dedicated movement.

The Present
In early 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic shocked the world. Everything changed suddenly and dramatically. While our ability to see others quickly dwindled, our desire to connect only grew. The team at Wise Assistant understood that the new normal would benefit from new tech to safely meet the rising need for connection in the time of corona. We spent every waking moment building the planning assistant we’d always wanted, seeing the opportunity to take a burden off people already struggling with a world gone increasingly chaotic.
“Life is short, break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that makes you smile.” —Mark Twain
The Future
Brighter days are just around the corner (no, really!).
Wise Assistant is less about keeping our users glued to their phones, and more about pulling them from digital distractions into the present moment. We’re creating a community of people who want to plan and share more meaningful experiences. Our mission is to eliminate the gap between the wish to experience and the experience itself. Too many potential memories never make it all because it was a hassle to coordinate busy schedules, figure out what to do, and a dozen other unsexy things. We want to eliminate the things that matter the least, so that you can live the life that matters the most.
