TravelStarter, the travel funding platform that allows you to fund local projects in exchange for rewards when you travel has arrived in the US with projects in San Diego and San Francisco.
Innovation in tourism is long overdue, but with TravelStarter, travellers will always be exposed to new ways of getting a local experience. Whether it is funding a Bed and Breakfast in San Diego in exchange for a few nights or donating to a Coworking space in San Franscisco for full 24 hour access to their facilities, TravelStarters is sure to provide unique local experiences to any seasoned traveler.
TravelStarter has already helped hundreds of travel-focused projects get off the ground in Europe and the UK. With an aim to support local tourism and give its community of backers unique travel rewards for their support, TravelStarter looks to change the way we enjoy other cultures and travel by helping great ideas become successes.
Instead of travelers just site seeing a getting a superficial experience where they go, TravelStarter allows people to fund projects at their destination cities and reap the rewards offered by each project when they arrive.
Anyone can submit their project for review on the TravelStarter website, and once it is approved, donors can begin to fund the project in exchange for rewards.
“We are thrilled to see these projects on a brand new continent thriving in their bid to reach their funding goals,” says TravelStarter Co-founder and CEO Anushka Beltram. “All of us at TravelStarter are avid travelers and we are always looking for new and exciting ways to discover a country, the cuisine and the culture. By funding a TravelStarter project, our backers can do exactly that and be rewarded in a way that gives them a unique traveling experience.”
