Bruno Mahfuz is born in 1984, graduated in business administration and a wheelchair user since he was 17, when he suffered a car accident. Since then, he has collected several experiences due to the lack of accessibility.
The experience in the wheelchair made him realize that an “Accessible Experience” is not restricted to compliance with the rules, but to a set of practices that involves infrastructure, service and, above all, society’s awareness of the importance of the theme. Thus, Bruno founded Wheelguide, an accessibility company that informs, raises awareness and certifies spaces to provide a more autonomous and inclusive life for all.
In 2016, it launched the Wheelguide application, a free and collaborative tool, to consult and assess the accessibility of locations. As a wheelchair user, his motivation to create the platform was to save frustration from the lack of information about accessibility.
