Web-based platform which supports travel guides, local artisans, and cultural vendors by using live video shopping.
Lola Akinmade Åkerström, co-founder and CEO at Local Purse.
"Live video shopping is a macro trend that is rapidly changing the way we make our online purchases and it is the future of retail.
"By merging live video shopping with cultural experiences in a personal way, our mission is to provide a sustainable way of supporting the travel industry that doesn’t require physical travel.
"This also means reducing our carbon footprints while benefiting from one of the most culturally enriching parts of travel."
Local Purse pitched the company in the Summit competition at the Phocuswright Conference 2021 and was named one of PhocusWire's Hot 25 Travel Startups 2022.
