Startup Name:- Gooster
Tagline:- Giving travelers the most relevant and off the beaten track tips, tricks, events and recommendations on the go.
Elevator Pitch:- 85% of people who travel, only start looking for things to do, when they’re already at the destination. Even those of us who do plan, usually end end doing something completely different. Every city has its own rhythm, its own “secrets”. People tend to miss out on so many amazing (and relevant) things for them to see and do, while they’re drowning in information. It’s almost as if you’re trying to get a Phd in travel, a feeling we usually get from TripAdvisor or Google Search, while we’re only trying to enjoy the short time we have away from our busy lives.
Our solution, is an artificial intelligence powered chatbot, giving you as travelers the most relevant and sometimes unusual: tips, tricks, events and recommendations, on-the-spot. It’s instantly accessible via Facebook Messenger, so you don’t have to download an app or create an account of some sort. It’s the most easy, accessible and intuitive travel tool currently out there.
