I Like Local is proud to announce that we have been selected as one of the winning startups at the 2021 Newsweek Future of Travel Awards!
Some travel trends come and go, but it seems one is here to stay: Working from anywhere has opened the world to us beyond merely seeing it on a vacation—but it’s also made us even more tied to our tech.
There’s always opportunity in crises: Some nimble startups and tech companies flourished with new ideas during the pandemic, while some were already ahead of the game with a innovative concept. From booking platforms to apps to data-driven technology, here are the ones leading the way.
Innovation through startups is the key driver to promote a more sustainable, social impact and tech tourism sector. Thanks to the tourism innovation ecosystem, more than 35 percent of startups are led by women, millions of added value jobs are created for youth with digital skills, and nonconventional ways of making tourism are booming to interact between destinations and travelers.
