Silicon Valley start-up, TourNative was co-founded by a friend of mine in Mountain View CA. TourNative helps tourists reach natives and share a true and organic local experience. Creating jobs locally and connecting people worldwide. Tired of touristy things when you travel? Get a local to offer you a unique tour or experience. TourNative has received $40,000 in seed funding from Startup Chile. I was an advisory baord member of Tournative June 2014 through January 2015.
Think of TourNative as an uber or airbnb for local tours and experiences. It’s insured and is available on desktop, tablet and in the apple AppStore under “TourNative”. And shortly next on Android.
Imagine being able to get a highly rated local to take you on a walking tour of the old ruins in Angkor Wat, Cambodia. Or a local who is more like an old friend, teaching you to surf on Bondi Beach followed by lunch with them at one of the most popular local hangouts in Sydney. You can even see as they are approaching you and no money changes hands, it’s all electronic. Best of all you can check out reviews, ratings and rate the experience you had as well, complete with photos!
