Gyst is local business search and discovery engine. Gyst aims to be the local search leader of Africa and is available on web & mobile.
Gyst connects buyers with sellers - helping buyers find the right providers of products and services while helping sellers improve the efficiency of their marketing efforts.
Using a small army of young and eager Nigerians, Gyst is assembling a rich directory of businesses by going door to door and street to street. Gyst collects information on businesses such as contact details, photos and location data and making it all available to consumers for free.
Creating a business listing on Gyst is free. Gyst is currently live in Lagos, Nigeria - the largest city in Africa with as many as 15 million residents.
Gyst goes beyond just “where is the nearest beauty salon?”. It allows consumers to answer questions such as “What is the best beauty salon in my area?” or “What is the beauty salon that my friends visit most?”.
Users write reviews about businesses and see what businesses are recommended by friends.
