Alyssa Machinis, Co-Founder


Dean Economos, Co-Founder

Hi, we're Alyssa Machinis & Dean Economos, the founders of SKEEM. Both of us grew up in the suburbs of Chicago but regularly ventured into the city throughout our childhoods. Because of those experiences, we've always been interested in trying new restaurants, going out to cocktail bars, and exploring activities throughout the city. This passion translated into exploring new places around the US and world as well.

After being asked many times by friends and colleagues for unique dinner and drinks ideas, and being the designated event coordinator of our friend groups, we realized there were others who would appreciate the same guidance. This is how SKEEM was born.

SKEEM is a social concierge service focused on taking the stress out of planning an outing. It strips the complexities away that deter people from enjoying themselves when they go out, such as coordinating reservations, discovering new restaurants, exploring new neighborhoods - by doing it all for them.

We are so excited to be launching SKEEM in our hometown. Chicago is a hub of so many incredible places for people to experience, and we're thrilled to be able to connect those who live here and are visiting to all of what Chicago has to offer, especially after the devastating effects of the pandemic. We hope you put your trust in us to plan unforgettable experiences for you.
